The BBC’s Zane Lowe show premiered Arctic Monkeys’ first single from the forthcoming Favourite Worst Nightmare, and it’s a fuzzier, more intense, post-Klaxons sound we’re hearing from the Sheffield lads. Head to Scatter o’ Light to grab the isolated MP3 rip from the broadcast. The tune’s played back to back and features Zane’s patented, “Intevention”-esque “Hottest record in the world!” proclamation, quickly on the heels of yelling “Ouch! That just happened.”
Favourite Worst Nightmare is out 04/26/07 on Domino.
