Kasabian have unveiled another new track from upcoming album, 48:13 - performing 'Stevie on Later With Jools Holland. Check it out below. 

After performing 'Eez-eh' and 'Bumblebee' on the initial live show last week, the weekend's extended episode featured the extra performance of 'Stevie'. 

A James Bond-esque, menacing orchestral intro is soon pierced by syncopated beats and some filthy, fuzzy bass. The words "come down, take your medication" marks this as a pretty accurate hangover soundtrack, before the huge call to arms of "live to fight another day, live to fight again."

The jamming outro suggests that the band may have been listening to lot of Temples lately, but it makes for another future live favourite. It will sound huge at Glastonbury.
