Listen to Arctic Monkeys' New Single "Cornerstone"



"Cornerstone" is the second single from the solid Humbug. When we think of Arctic Monkeys singles, we usually think of something like a derailed express train, steaming through stops with new basslines coming from all directions that accelerate a track to it's absolute peak within a three minute time constraint. This one, however, is definitely the boys coasting on the local track, with Turner himself even stressing "elongating my lift home" while pining for a girl that might or might not exist. In a way, it's Arctic Monkeys doing Spoon doing the Arctic Monkeys. This is a good look for them. Unsurprisingly, "Cornerstone" is one of the only three tracks on Humbug not produced by Josh Homme, and this softer side really lets Turner's smooth, seductive croon seep through. And, you know, it's pretty hard to sound seductive over all the guitar layers and flam taps Homme probably would have insisted on. Check it out below.
