"My Propeller" is a song by the English indie rock band Arctic Monkeys. It was released as the third single from the band's third studio album Humbug, as announced on 1 February 2010.[2] Released on 22 March 2010, the single follows its two predecessors from Humbug, "Crying Lightning" and "Cornerstone", with the 10" vinyl being sold exclusively at Oxfam charity stores.[3]

The 10" version of the single features three new b-sides, with the 7" bringing one new b-side.

The video for the single was released on 18 March.

The song "Joining the Dots" was revealed during Alex Turner's visit to Little Noise Sessions along with an untitled song simply known as "Camel", a title coined by Luke McConnon and Jake Gilman of fans forum Arctic Monkeys US. Alex Turner has stated in a conversation with another forum user that he "likes the title quite a lot".

Originally, Arctic Monkeys planned the third single to be "Pretty Visitors", but was switched to "My Propeller".
