Arctic Monkeys – Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?

After teasing us with the latest Arctic Monkeys single, silly copyright laws prevented us folks stateside from actually seeing it. Fortunately for us, the lawyers got it all sorted out and we’ve now got the premiere of “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” video to drool over.

Taking a cinematic approach, the clip follows a revved up Alex Turner on a deliriously soused late night quest for booty. Following in the same vein as “Do I Wanna Know?,” their latest single features a massive, steady rocking hip-hop inspired beat over the most minimal of vocals. To quote Alex Turner, it sounds “like a Dr. Dre beat” that’s been “given an Ike Turner bowl-cut and sent galloping across the desert on a Stratocaster.”

Mark your calendars, AM, the Monkey’s fifth album is out September 9 via Domino.
