Watch Alex Turner and Matt Helders' epic stripped-back performance of this classic AM track.
Arctic Monkeys released their Do I Wanna Know single on 19 June 2013.
The track was the dramatic opener to their AM album, signifying the Sheffield band's move into a new and exciting musical direction.
Alex Turner and co have since stunned their fans by making another musical departure with their Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino album, but back in 2013 they were busy changing things up on their fifth LP.
During that time, Alex Turner and drummer Matt Helders visited the Radio X studios for a very stripped-back version of their Do I Wanna Know? single.
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.
