Arctic Monkeys Return With New Single 'Do I Wanna Know' [Listen]

Arctic Monkeys have returned with 'Do I Wanna Know,' the first single to be taken from their fifth studio album.

The new track, first played at a concert in California last month and subsequently used as a set opener during the bands Scandinavian shows, is now available to download on iTunes. A new video for the track has also rolled out online.

Featuring a thudding beat throughout and a rip-roaring Queens of the Stone Age-esque chorus, Do I Wanna Know is certainly an interesting track, if a little unremarkable. The band have also premiered new song 'Mad Sounds' at the Hultsfred Festival in Sweden on Friday (June 14, 2013) and again at the Danish NorthSide festival on Sunday. Both new songs re likely to feature on the band's forthcoming new album.

Arctic Monkeys will headline Glastonbury later this month, alongside The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons. The latter's appearance is still up in the air after bassist Ted Dwayne was hospitalized for a brain tumor, with the group being replaced by Jack Johnson at Bonnaroo Festival in the U.S.
