Alex Turner and co played the fan favourite from Suck It and See at their Oklahoma date.

Arctic Monkeys treated fans to a performance of Library Pictures for the first time on their Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino tour.

Alex Turner and co - who are back in North America after playing triumphant UK tour dates last month - rolled out the track, which comes from their fourth studio album Suck It and See.

Watch a clip of the moment above, which they played at their show in The Criterion in Oklahoma City on Wednesday (10 October).

It's not the first time the Sheffield outfit have brought out old favourites from their earlier albums.

Their homecoming gigs saw them play stripped-back versions of Fluorescent Adolescent, which is taken from their Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not album.

They also treated fans to a minimalist version of their Mardy Bum anthem, which is also taken from their debut.

Despite still playing the classic tracks, Alex Turner did admit it felt like he was "doing a cover" when he's performing songs from the band's first record.

Speaking to Beatroute about their changing sound, the frontman mused: "It feels like we’re doing a cover or something when we play the first album, really".

The Four out of Five singer added: "But that’s fine. I don’t hate doing that. It’s just come to the point where I play Mardy Bum or something like that and it doesn’t even feel like mine anymore."
