It’s been a few months since Arctic Monkeys released their latest album The Car, and they’re not done dropping singles from this record. The British band just dropped an atmospheric music video for the album’s fourth single “Sculptures of Anything Goes”.

Arctic Monkeys kept things pretty straightforward in their latest music video, putting the focus on their live performances. The visual for “Sculptures of Anything Goes” shows Alex Turner and the rest of the gang rehearsing backstage before a concert and then performing this song live.

Turner compared the sound of “Sculptures” to the sound of the band’s hit 2013 album AM, and revealed that the song came about after guitarist Jamie Cook got a Moog synthesizer and put a drum machine through it.

“We wrote a song based off that, really… is the succinct answer. It started there [and then] it became a million other things. There were multiple different versions, and it ended up kind of back where it started… having had a haircut,” Turner told the Dutch radio station NPO 3FM.

The Car was originally released on October 21, 2022, and it produced singles “There’d Better Be a Mirrorball”, “Body Paint”, and “I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am”. The band is promoting it with a tour across Europe, North America, South America, Oceania, and Asia, which will include a recently announced headlining spot at Glastonbury.
