Arctic Monkeys have premiered a new song called “There’d Better Be a Mirrorball,” the first preview of the band’s much-anticipated upcoming album, The Car.

Sonically, the track follows in the lounge-y direction of 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, though is lyrically more grounded than its science fiction-themed predecessor. “There’d Better Be a Mirrorball” also gives The Car its title with the lyric, “If you wanna walk me to the car.”

You can listen to “There’d Better Be a Mirrorball” now via digital outlets and watch its accompanying video streaming now on YouTube.

The Car, the seventh Arctic Monkeys album, is due out October 21.
