"Arabella" was played live for the first time on 30 August 2013, during Zurich Openair festival performance, which was a part of the AM Tour.[6] The band often play part of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs" during live performances of the song, done to give Alex Turner time to equip a guitar for the solo. The part "War Pigs" is played due to the similarities between the riffs of the two songs.[7]

Music video

An official music video for the song, directed by English director Jake Nava, premiered on 2 March 2014.[8]

In September 2013, following the release of AM, "Arabella" charted at number 155 on the UK Singles Chart,[9] number 26 on the UK Indie Chart,[10] and number 7 on the Ultratip chart of Belgium's Flanders region.[11] Following the announcement of its single release in March 2014, the single re-entered the UK Singles and Indie charts, peaking at numbers 70 and 9 respectively. "Arabella" was added to the BBC Radio 1 playlist on the B-list on 10 February 2014.[12]
