The track will be released as the B-Side to the band's new single 'R U Mine?' on special purple vinyl for this Saturday's (April 21) Record Store Day. You can see the video for 'R U Mine?' by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The band have spoken recently about the follow-up to their fourth studio album 'Suck It And See' and drummer Matt Helders has said that the Sheffield rockers are keen to continue writing material in the vein of 'R U Mine?' and recent B-Side 'Evil Twin' for their next LP.

He said of this: "The way 'R U Mine?' has gone we are more into doing songs like that for now. We are kind of into the idea of doing a record that is like 'Evil Twin' and 'R U Mine?'."

The band are in the midst of a lengthy stint across the USA and Canada as support to The Black Keys on their US arena tour and will make their second appearance at Coachella Festival this weekend.

Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner and Matt Helders are among the artists who've revealed the records that changed their life in this week's issue of NME.

In the special Record Store Day preview issue, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally now, both Turner and Helders pick out the releases that changed everything for them.
