The Darkness have premiered their studio cover of Radiohead's 'Street Spirit (Fade Out)' online.

'Street Spirit (Fade Out)' first appeared on Radiohead's classic 1995 album 'The Bends'. It was released as single in January 1996 and became the band's first Top Five hit.

The Darkness have been performing the song live for several years, but have only now recorded a studio version, which is set to appear on their comeback album 'Hot Cakes'. Earlier today (July 24), the track began streaming on Pitchfork.

Discussing their decision to record 'Street Spirit (Fade Out)' for their new album, frontman Justin Hawkins said in May: "We included the Radiohead cover because it has been a live favourite for many moons, and we wanted to release a definitive recording of our interpretation."

The Darkness release 'Hot Cakes', their first album since 2005's 'One Way Ticket To Hell And Back', on August 20. The band are set to support Lady Gaga on her European stadium tour this Autumn, including a pair of dates at London's Twickenham on September 8 and 9.

The full tracklisting for 'Hot Cakes' is as follows:

'Every Inch Of You'
'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us'
'With A Woman'
'Keep Me Hangin' On'
'Living Every Day Blind'
'Everybody Having A Good Time'
'She Just A Girl Eddie'
'Forbidden Love'
'Concrete'
'Street Spirit (Fade Out)'
'Love Is Not The Answer'
