The Kooks evoke French cinema in new video for 'Around Town'

Band say there were inspired by directord Luke Besson and Quentin Tarantino

The Kooks have unveiled the video for their new track 'Around Town' – watch it above.

The video, which features a French assassin, was inspired by directors Luc Besson and Quentin Tarantino.

"We decided rather than simply put a video to music we would do something more cinematic. It was very much a collaboration with director Ryan Hope. We wanted to evoke the directors Besson and Tarantino, while also exploring themes of karma and the poem If," The Kooks' frontman Luke Pritchard said in a statement.

The band will release their comeback album, 'Listen', on September 1. Produced by frontman Luke Pritchard and hip-hop producer Inflo, it also features the track 'Down'.

'Listen' tracklisting:

'Around Town'
'Forgive & Forget'
'Westside'
'See Me Now'
'It Was London'
'Bad Habit'
'Down'
'Dreams'
'Are We Electric'
'Sunrise'
'Sweet Emotion'
