After premiering the song in concert last month, British rockers the Arctic Monkeys have released the studio version of their new single, “Do I Wanna Know?”

The band’s sound continues to evolve beyond the snappy and upbeat kick of early singles like “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor,” with the new single riding on a slow-burning big-beat stomp, falsetto backing vocals and a massive sing-along chorus.


According to drummer Matt Helders, the band will release a new album this year, their first full-length since 2011’s Suck it and See.

The Arctic Monkeys only have one U.S. date on their tour itinerary this summer, with the band scheduled to play the Music Midtown 2013 festival in Atlanta, Ga., over the weekend of September 20-21 alongside such acts as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Imagine Dragons, 2 Chainz and Journey.
