Welcome to the new era of Arctic Monkeys.

After their long-awaited sixth album, Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino, finally dropped on Friday (11 May), fans of the UKs premier band have been endlessly debating its merits.

Adopting a more laid-back and lounge-y sound than on their previous records, the Monkeys latest effort has divided many of their fans – while some have bemoaned the lack of guitars, others have been praising frontman and chief songwriter Alex Turners next ambitious leap forward.

Whatever you make of the new album, chances are youll still be intrigued to see what this latest incarnation of AM looks like on screen.

After opting to not preview any singles from Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino prior to the albums release, the band have now shared the rather eccentric new video for the track Four Out Of Five.

Turner takes centre stage in the piece, with the singer and guitarist seen directing and recording a series of strange images for virtual lifestyle packages.

Far out, man.

Further scenes see the frontman also walking the halls of Yorkshires Castle Howard (with an excellent dog in tow) and taking a lonely drive, before the clip later culminates with Turner reuniting with his bandmates to perform Four Out Of Five.

Its a surreal video thats very suited to the brave new territory that Arctic Monkeys have strode on to with their latest album – but can the new 60s and 70s cinema-indebted clip win their doubters over?

It certainly has us, anyway – were giving this video a very satisfactory four stars out of five.
