But band reveal 'Crying Lighting' was an early "favourite"

Arctic Monkeys have stated that their new single is "strange".

'Crying Lightning' is released next month, but frontman Alex Turner told BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe: ""This was deemed the best signifier of the record. It was a favourite during recording.

"It's strange as far as a pop song goes."

He added: "We've enjoyed making it more than the other two put together. It does really feel like we're getting somewhere."
