Arctic Monkeys, a world-famous rock band, are said to have been recording their seventh studio album in Butley Priory, a swanky location on the Suffolk coast of England that was once the gatehouse of an Augustinian monastery. According to a since-edited blog entry on the venue’s website, the band stayed in June and July.
The four-piece is reported to have spent a month at the venue working on their highly anticipated follow-up to 2018’s ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.’
“We’ve had a band staying for the last month recording. Musicians love the acoustics in the Great Hall and Drawing room, with their huge vaulted ceilings,” the post reads.
“Being serenaded while watering and weeding the garden, listening to the double bass, drums and piano wafting out of the open double doors, was pretty nice. Thank you, Arctic Monkeys.”
Following that, a new Instagram post appeared, which you can see below:
Matt Helders, the drummer for the ‘505’ rockers, revealed earlier this year that they were in the “early stages” of trying to “compose a new record.”
However, they were “faced with various obstacles” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
