Arctic Monkeys have shown their R&B side with a cover version of Drake's current Top 10 hit, 'Hold On, We're Going Home'. Listen below.

The cover comes after a triumphant week for the Sheffield rockers. The band released their new album AM this week (which is set to be the fastest selling album of 2013) and headlined the Monday night of this week's iTunes Festival shows.

The band's new album is packed with R&B influences after recording the record in the US, so their cover of Drake's hit comes as no real surprise. Arctic Monkeys version boasts a similar grinding groove to the original track, but with added live band elements and a superb female vocal alongside Alex Turner.
