King Alex Turner talks to GRAMMY about the band's growth and writing 'Do I Wanna Know?'

Singer/songwriter Alex Turner of GRAMMY-nominated alternative rock group Arctic Monkeys recently participated in an exclusive interview and discussed creating the band's 2013 Top 10 album, AM, and writing the riff to the hit "Do I Wanna Know?" among other topics.

"We were definitely jumping for joy before we put [AM] out," said Turner. "Not because we thought we were about to sell a s***load of records, but because it felt like we'd made a genuine progression from where we started out and to what I think is a more interesting musical landscape that we're occupying now."

With the release of AM, Arctic Monkeys made history as the first independent group to score five consecutive UK No. 1 albums. AM peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, marking their highest-charting album in the U.S. to date. The album features 12 tracks, including the hit "Do I Wanna Know?"

Arctic Monkeys are currently in the midst of an international tour, with dates scheduled through November.
