Arctic Monkeys

The Arctic Monkeys (who got nominated for the Mercury Prize this week for their solid new album) stopped by BBC 1 Radio to record this cover of Drake’s recent track “Hold On We’re Going Home.” They aren’t the first people to cover it either, Blood Orange tackled the song last month. Listen/watch below.

Drake’s new album Nothing Was The Same is out 9/17 on Cash Money.

  1. this is a very good cover. their new album is also very good.

  2. Don’t really care about this cover, just wanna say that AM is the shit!!!!!!

  3. This is probably the best cover I’ve heard this year. Such an awesome song already, and Arctic Monkeys bring a lot of life and energy to it.

  4. I have to say, I find Alex Turner’s slightly ragged voice much more enjoyable to listen to than Drake’s Autotuned falsetto. Good track.

  5. It just happens that I was in a Macy’s picking up some makeup for my wife and someone over at the Bobbi Brown counter put on the original of “Hold On, We’re Going Home”…and you’re right, the kick just destroys the track. It’s terrible crunk-’n'-B of the sort that should have gone away five years ago.
