Arctic Monkeys cover Stephen Fretwell for Spotify Singles: Stream

Arctic Monkeys debuted two new cover songs this past summer, taking on The Strokes’ “Is This It” in New York and The White Stripes’ “The Union Forever” in Detroit. For their new Spotify Singles session, Alex Turner & co. unveiled yet another cover, in addition to rolling out a gorgeous live version of Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino track “Four Out of Five”.

Recorded at NYC’s renowned Electric Lady Studios, their Spotify set opens with “Four Out of Five”. Turner’s voice here is coupled with the bold beauty of an electric piano (said to be a Fender Rhodes / Wurlitzer 200a). The second offering is a haunting update on “-“, which originally appeared on English singer-songwriter Stephen Fretwell’s 2004 album, Magpie. Fretwell and Arctic Monkeys have history, as Fretwell previously served as the touring bassist for Turner’s side-project The Last Shadow Puppets.
