Arctic Monkeys confirmed their return this Thursday and announced that their sixth album will be released May 11. The album will be titled Tranquillity Base Hotel & Casino and was produced by Alex Turner alongside James Ford in LA, London, and Paris.

The upcoming album might feature members from indie bands Tame Impala, Klaxons and Mini Masons. According to NME, a listing from a German retailer claims that the album features the band’s keyboardist Tom Rowley, drummer Loren Humphries, as well as James Righton of Klaxons, Zach Dawes and Tyler Parkford from Mini Mansions and Tame Impala bassist Cam Avery.

It has not been confirmed but we only need to wait a month to find out if the new album really will be something of a “super album” featuring members from other leading and current indie groups.
