The Kooks - Around Town

Taken from new album Listen, which is out 1 September 2014.

The  record was produced by frontman Luke Pritchard and young hip hop pioneer Inflo.

Around Town follows up first single Down and is released 15 June.

"To me," Luke says, "this album is about pure expression. Even the way we made the album felt fresh. Rather than us just being a band in a room, playing our guitars with the vocal over the top, which is what we’d always done before, we were really listening to what was going on around us, picking up ideas. The whole thing was much more natural."
