English rock band Arctic Monkeys are set to release their new track 'Body Paint' today, as the second single from their forthcoming seventh studio album The Car, which is due to arrive on October 21 via Domino.
The band debuted their imminent single 'Body Paint' during an intimate show at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York last Thursday, September 22.
The guitar-backed track features the lyrics, "For a master of deception and subterfuge, you've made yourself quite the bed, to lie in," and "There's still a trace of body paint on your legs and on your arms and on your face". It's set to be an emotional listen.

Last month, Arctic Monkeys dropped lead single 'There'd Better Be A Mirrorball', a truly elegant breakup songs that captures the end of a relationship that was doomed to fail from the start.
"So if you wanna walk me to the car, you oughta know I'll have a heavy heart, so can we please be absolutely sure that there's a mirrorball?," lead singer Alex Turner asks on the bittersweet track, which revives the jazz-inspired style featured on the Sheffield band's 2018 LP Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino.
With the album titled The Car, one possible interpretation could be that the car in this song is "symbolic of the inevitable end of the party" or relationship in the wider sense, and possibly a reoccuring theme on the album.
In an interview with The Big Issue, published in August, Turner confirmed that "on this record, sci-fi is off the table. We are back to earth.
"I think we've got closer to a better version of a more dynamic overall sound with this record," the rocker continued. "The strings on this record come in and out of focus and that was a deliberate move and hopefully everything has its own space. There's time the band comes to the front and then the strings come to the front."
The four-piece is set to appear as musical guests on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on today's episode, as announced by Davey Latter, AM’s percussionist and drum tech, on Instagram last week.
