Watch Arctic Monkeys perform acoustic rendition of "Do I Wanna Know?"

Alex Turner acoustic

Since its release last June, the second single off Arctic Monkeys' fifth studio full-length has been steadily gaining traction. Just last month the AM standout entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the band's first single to ever do so. Now, frontman Alex Turner and drummer Matt Helders come at us with a nicely executed acoustic version of the hit. The take was recorded/filmed at New York City's Avatar Studios.

Speaking of New York and Arctic Monkeys, the Sheffield foursome are set to play their biggest headlining NYC gig to date tonight at Madison Square Garden. The show is completely sold out. For now, you will just have to check out the session video of "Do I Wanna Know" below. If you missed it, the guys also performed the tune on The Late Show with David Letterman. Catch that below as well.
