Alex Turner shared some insight into his writing process before the Arctic Monkeys show at Forest Hills Stadium last month, and he was very generous with info. He talked about how he thinks living in New York changed his creative process, which lyrics on the new album he changed (and which he ALMOST did), and what makes a potential song too "lumpy". And you might be surprised to learn how much country music has influenced Alex too!

Whether you're a fan of the Arctic Monkeys or an artist looking for inspiration, there's something here for you. See all of Alex Turner's tips for songwriting here!
