Watch Arctic Monkeys Play “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High” Acoustic At Avatar Studios

Back when Arctic Monkeys released AM single “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High,” Tom compared it to Britain’s sleek new wave of dark and artsy R&B-pop, and the band turned to noted hip-hop video producer Nabil for the video. But as this acoustic performance at Manhattan’s Avatar Studios proves, it works as a xylophone-infused folk ballad too, albeit a folk ballad with soulful falsetto accents. Have a look below.

AM is out now via Domino.
