Adolescent Love For Alex
Monkeys frontman's ex says the success of their new single is down to her writing...
Arctic Monkeys new single Fluorescent Adolescent was written by singer Alex Turner AND his ex-girlfriend.
Aspiring musician, Johanna Bennett told The Observer she co-wrote the hit with the singer when they were on holiday last year.
We were on holiday and had cut ourselves off from everything, she said. We were in a really quiet hotelso as not to drive each other mad we started messing around with these words like game, singing them to each other.
The relatively unknown Totalizer frontwoman added, Its great to think that it came from something we did for fun on holiday. Itll always be a good memory for Alex and I. Turner himself is yet to confirm such fond nostalgia.
Swiftly and aptly moving on to her own career, Bennett mentioned that the band was something Alex really encouraged me to do.
With an Arctic seal of approval already in place, the imminent Totalizers gigs make Johannas revelations seem very well timed.
