The Arctic Monkey’s Alex Turner has admitted that his musical inspiration comes directly from the heart.

Speaking to the Baltimore Sun, Turner, who recently split up with his long-term girlfriend Alexa Chung, explained how a solitary existence aided in the creative process.

"I am a romantic fool, no doubt about that, but I can’t help myself but write those songs," he said.

"I spend a bit of time sitting on the couch with an acoustic guitar — taking breaks, having a cigarette, going to the window then going back. You do that, you end up doing a lot more of that [romantic] stuff, probably too much."

Seen as one of the most interesting singer-songwriters to have come out of England in a long time, Turner explained that the author Tom Wolfe was also an inspiration, especially the way in which the author observes and then reports on things in a unique and captivating way.

Suck It and See, which is the band’s new studio album, has been met enthusiastically, both from music fans and critics alike.

Earlier this year he said he was happy for people to compare the Arctic Monkeys to Oasis.
