The Arctic Monkeys have released a dark acoustic cut of their hit "Do I Wanna Know?" from their 2013 album AM, recorded live in New York City's Avatar Studios. With just two members present, this version strips down the Arctic Monkeys' heavy bluesy aesthetic to a somber lounge song.
The raw emotion is carried as much in the silence between each phrase as in Alex Turner's lyrics. The acoustic cut gives "Do I Wanna Know" a whole new sound and a serious edge with minimal production. Check out the difference from their recent performances on Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
