Band have started discussing new record

Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders has revealed that the band have been discussing the prospect of starting work on a new album.

The Sheffield group released their third album Humbug earlier this year but according to Helders, they've already started to talk about recording the follow-up - although it's unlikely to be in the near future.

He said: "We're already talking about when we can record again, but I still enjoy being on tour as well.

"It's good to have time to work stuff out, then at least you can start doing the quality control before and actually record what you think is decent, rather than recording hundreds of songs to then find out you only like 10 of them."
