Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino is the sixth studio album by English indie rock band Arctic Monkeys. It will be released on 11 May 2018 through the Domino Recording Company, following up AM (2013). It is produced by frequent Arctic Monkeys collaborator James Ford and band frontman Alex Turner. The album was written by Turner on a piano, and features a lush sound; a departure from the band's previous guitar-heavy work. Its lyrical content is influenced by science fiction, and explores politics, religion and technology.

Most of the songs featured on Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino were written in 2016 by Alex Turner at his Los Angeles Home, on a Steinway Vertegrand piano gifted to him as a birthday present. Many of the vocal takes on the album remain from Turner's home demos on a Tascam 388 8-track recording machine. Guitarist Jamie Cook commented that he "was blown away by the direction Alex had gone in" when Turner played the band the demos in February 2017. Initially unsure how they would record the songs, Cook suggested Turner release it as a solo album, however Turner was uninterested. Cook began recording guitar ideas to complement the demo, with bassist Nick O'Malley approving of track "The Star Treatment". Throughout recording sessions in Vox Studios in Hollywood and La Frette in Paris, "the piano and guitar started to jell", with O'Malley and drummer Matt Helders joining the sessions. Helders commented that during recording he played with more restraint than on previous records, noting that "it's about playing for the songs".

The album is a departure from the band's previous guitar riff-driven work, featuring a "lush and claustrophobic", jazz-influenced sound, resultant of Turner's usage of the piano in its composition. The album has been compared to the works of Father John Misty, David Bowie and Serge Gainsbourg, as well as Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys. Turner has cited Gainsbourg's Histoire de Melody Nelson, Dion's Born to Be with You and François de Roubaix's score for Le Samouraï as key influences. The music has been described as "subdued, but warm and classic in the way that musicians who seek out storied mixing consoles aspire to".

The track "One Point Perspective" contains "lavish" strings and a "super-simple hip-hop beat", while "The Ultracheese" has been compared to "Que Sera, Sera", with a "gorgeous" guitar solo. "Four Out of Five" has been described as a "Bowie-ish glam song", as well as being likened to the band's Suck It and See, as well as Everything You've Come to Expect by Turner's side-project the Last Shadow Puppets. "Golden Trunks" contains a "raw and brooding" guitar riff that has been compared to the album's predecessor AM, with "Science Fiction" and "Batphone" being compared to Humbug. "She Looks Like Fun" has been described as a "'60s-style novelty track".

Lyrically the album refers frequently to science fiction, exploring "the role of entertainment – the desire to escape into it, and the desire to create it – during periods of societal upheaval and crisis", influenced by current politics in the United States, as well as religion and technology. Turner has labelled the album's narrator as "a lounge-y character", with the "dense" and "self-aware" lyrics described as "endlessly quotable". "Star Treatment", the album's opening track, begins with a reference to The Strokes' influence on the bands early work.
