Before launching into their US Arena Tour with The Black Keys, the little rock band from Sheffield, England surprised fans in the wee hours of the morning when they released the single “R U Mine.” The track is a stand-alone, not included on the current album “Suck It And See.” This is the first time most of the band’s fans have heard the song.

The video is an interesting look at what it must be like for a musician to hear their material over the car stereo just like everyone else. The guys requested that Steve Jones, Sex Pistols’ member and host of Jonesy’s Jukebox on LA’s KROQ-FM, record video as he world-premiered it a few weeks ago.

Download the track from iTunes.
