Band reveal black and white video for latest single to be taken from 'AM'
Arctic Monkeys ride tractors in the black and white video for new single ‘One For The Road’
The song, which features on the band’s latest album ‘AM’, is accompanied by a new video shot by Focus Creeps, who also made the videos for ‘R U Mine?’ and ‘Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?’ The video starts with guitarist Jamie Cook riding a tractor slowly through an empty field before joining his bandmates for a performance of the song, surrounded by models and fireworks exploding in the background. ‘One For The Road’ will be released on December 9 and comes with new B-Side ‘You’re So Dark’.
