Listen: Arctic Monkeys Cover Katy B’s “On A Mission”

    Arctic Monkeys just performed a session for Fearne Cotton’s show on Radio One in the U.K., which included a cover of Katy B’s “On a Mission.” The track has been stripped of its irresistible groove here, with a sparse rock grind replacing it. Somehow Alex Turner and his band have made this sound like one of their own tracks—although the creaky solo at the midway point suggests this hasn’t been rehearsed too many times. Still, this works really well as an off-the-cuff curio, which is exactly the kind of thing more groups should try out in sessions like these. Check out the cover of “On a Mission” in the clip below.
