Brit rockers Arctic Monkeys delighted fans with a brand new song and music video for “You and I,” the b-side to their latest single “Black Treacle.”
The track primarily features vocals from legendary English singer Richard Hawley and his imperfectly perfect quaffed pompadour and smoky, bourbon-soaked voice.
The song is decidedly more hard rock than past AM ventures, and is chock full of their signature smart lyricism. In addition, lyrics like “If I had a heart/You’re the one that should break it,” sound ten times cooler when growled by Hawley.
Check out the video as well, which features the band riding motorcycles and driving sports cars, while also showing footage of Hawley and the boys recording the track in a studio.
