Arctic Monkeys forgotten how to write hits
Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has ''forgotten'' how to write a hit song because the musical ''landscape'' has changed.

Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has "forgotten" how to write a chart hit.

The group scored five top five hits the UK between 2005 and 2007 - including number one 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor' - but none of the three singles from their last album, 'Suck it and See' made it into the top 40 and songwriter Alex thinks he's unable to pen a successful record because the musical "landscape" has changed.

When asked about chart success, he said: "I have f***ing forgotten how to do that. I don't know what that is any more, it's a different landscape these days."

The 25-year-old star also insists singing never came "naturally" to him and he is still "working on it".

He added to The Sun newspaper: "I was never a singer. I have had to practice at that and writing melodies is something that didn't come naturally. I was more comfortable writing lyrics.

"I am still working on it but I think we are getting there with the singing thing."

Alex wrote his first solo record, a six-track soundtrack for British movie 'Submarine', which was released in March this year and he also has his The Last Shadow Puppets side project with his friend Miles Kane.
