Album Info

  • Fact: The song was recorded for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge
Turner and co take on the might of Katy B, transporting ‘On A Mission’ from its grit-Brit foundations into a badlands-inspired rag-around. It wouldn’t sound out of place on a Ennio Morricone soundtrack, which is doubly weird considering they even manage to shoehorn the riff from ’60s standard ‘Shakin’ All Over’ in there at one point.
