Arctic Monkeys release ‘Black Treacle’, the new single from their ‘Suck It And See’ album on Monday the 23rd of January 2012.  ‘Black Treacle’ will be available on 7” and digitally.  The single will be backed with the exclusive new track ‘You And I’ by Richard Hawley and The Death Ramps, which was recorded and produced by Ross Orton in Sheffield.

Watch the video for ‘Black Treacle’ here – which was filmed in Sheffield and Los Angeles and directed by Focus Creeps, who have the following to say:

“The ‘Black Treacle’ video is a compilation of the darker outtakes of ‘Suck It & See’.  In the desert, the bright rays of the sun cast a long dark shadow. It's a prequel where laws get broke, and a sequel where hearts get broke.   On the one hand, the song kind of says, now matter how low things go, you can always dream, and on the other hand it's a video that kind of shows: kids, don't try this at home.”

Arctic Monkeys are currently on the road in Australia, continuing the ‘Suck It And See’ tour, which has taken in dates in Europe, America and a recent sold out Arena tour in the UK.
