Arctic Monkeys have shared a new music video for their latest single ‘Sculptures Of Anything Goes’ – watch below.
Directed by Ben Chappell, the moody visuals intersperse live footage, backstage clips and shots of frontman Alex Turner in various locations. Photography in the video comes from Chappell as well as Zackery Michael and James Kerr.
‘Sculptures Of Anything Goes’ appears on Arctic Monkeys‘ seventh and most recent studio album, 2022’s The Car. It’s the fourth song from the record to have been given a music video following ‘There’d Better Be A Mirrorball’, ‘Body Paint’ and ‘I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am’.
In a four-and-a-half-star review of The Car, Rolling Stone UK wrote: “‘Sculptures of Anything Goes’ sees the band experimenting with drum machines and Moog synthesisers to conjure an imposing beat that isn’t entirely dissimilar to that which memorably ran through ‘Do I Wanna Know’.
“It’s nearly proof that the DNA of the band remains the same, no matter what the naysayers might think.”

Last week, it was announced that the Monkeys will headline Glastonbury Festival 2023 alongside Guns N’ Roses and Elton John. It’ll mark the band’s third bill-topping set on Worthy Farm’s legendary Pyramid Stage.
Arctic Monkeys are also scheduled to embark on a UK and Ireland stadium tour in May. The stint includes a two-night billing at Hillsborough Park in Sheffield and three dates at London’s Emirates Stadium.
Back in January, the BBC launched a new podcast series detailing the story behind AM’s classic debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not (2006).
