Fresh off their nomination for the Mercury Prize with their solid new album, indie darlings Arctic Monkeys stopped by BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge for a short set. The quartet covered Drake‘s latest single, “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”

While they aren’t the first to take on the track, Arctic Monkeys rendition is in a different league, fitting thematically with their latest LP. Full of certain angst and pining, lead singer Alex Turner makes it seem like the cover is just another track off AM.

Check out more of Arctic Monkeys on the band’s official website.
