They've got a brand new combine harvester

Whoever said The Arctic Monkeys' new album was "all about the backing vocals" got it spot on. Across AM Alex Turner, apparently the world's number one Susanna Reid fan, lets his bandmates do all the heavy harmony lifting, and the result is their strongest record since their debut.

Case in point is new single One For The Road which, with it's "whoo whoo" refrain, is like a 60s Motown stomper played at the wrong speed.

The video sees the band playing a game of chicken with a variety of farm vehicles. Because, you know, they can.

Arctic Monkeys - One For The Road

Bonus content: Here's the Arctics doing Fireside in Radio 1's Live Lounge a couple of weeks ago. The drumming is ferocious. And I mean that in a good way.
