According to fan account Arctic Monkeys Japan, Turner is performing with Evan Weiss, Michael Shuman and Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa.

The song they're performing is Dion's Only You Know, which comes from the American singer-songwriter's 1975 album Born to Be with You.

Listen to the original track here:

Dion - Only you know

Dion is a huge influence of Turners and the Sheffield frontman has previously covered the track for an Arctic Monkeys session.
