The Kooks have revealed the video for their comeback single 'Down'. You can watch the clip at the bottom of the page via Digital Spy.

The band have worked with hip-hop producer and performer Inflo on the track, which was co-written and co-produced by singer Luke Pritchard.

"With this record we didn’t do any rehearsing beforehand," Pritchard said in a statement. "I'd write a song with Inflo or on my own, put it up and we’d all play over it. There was a real freedom to the process."

The band announced earlier this week they will play four shows in May, making appearances in London, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham. Starting at Glasgow's ABC on May 6, the band will then play shows at Manchester Ritz and London's Electric Ballroom on May 8 and 9 before ending the short jaunt on May 9 at Birmingham Institute.

The Kooks will play:

Glasgow, ABC (May 6)
Manchester, Ritz (7)
London, Electric Ballroom (8)
Birmingham, Institute (9)
