Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know (Radio X Session)
Watch Alex Turner and Matt Helders' epic stripped-back performance of this classic AM track.
Cast your mind back to when Arctic Monkeys released their Do I Wanna Know single on 19th June 2013.
The track was the dramatic opener to their album AM, signifying the Sheffield band's move into a new and exciting musical direction.
Alex Turner and co have since stunned their fans by making further musical departures with 2018's Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino and The Car, released last year.
But when they were unveiling their fifth album 10 years ago, Alex and drummer Matt Helders visited the Radio X studios for a very stripped-back version of their single Do I Wanna Know?.
It might be a stirring call to arms during their live shows, but the pair managed to transform the AM track into a quiet and intimate ballad.
Their seventh album The Car, saw the band expand their sound further, and in October last year Turner and Helders came into Radio X to talk John Kennedy through the album track by track.
The interview was the first episode of a brand new podcast, which sees John talk through some of the biggest albums of recent years with the artists that made them.
