Artwork new single

The monkeys already premiered a new cut, called I’m Not Quite Where I Think I Am,
a smooth, jazzy vibe, live a couple of weeks ago, but here’s the official first single.

There’d Better Be A Mirrorball sounds exactly like a track from
their could previous longplayer Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.

Yep, Turner returns back to his piano and tries hard again to be a vintage crooner,
but he hasn’t the voice for it, too light and far away from the real crooners like Nick
Cave, Leonard Cohen
and Tom Waits.

The days of exciting Monkeys punk rock commotion are obviously over. If that’s what Turner wants, he should go further up that road. Whatever he does his fans will adore
it anyway.
