The Kooks have a new single "Down." The song was previewed on Radio 1 in the UK earlier this week as Zane Lowe's Hottest Record. The band is billing the song as a mission statement from a band that have rediscovered what they loved about making music in the first place.

Written by Luke Pritchard and young hip hop pioneer Inflo, "Down" is like nothing the Kooks have ever done before.

"With this record we didn't do any rehearsing beforehand," Luke Pritchard says. "I'd write a song with Inflo or on my own, put it up and we'd all play over it. There was a real freedom to the process."

Produced by Inflo and co-produced by Luke, 'Down' was recorded in London and LA, and will be released digitally and on 7" vinyl thru Virgin/EMI.

The Kooks are currently at SXSW in Austin, Texas playing a series of shows and previewing new material. Earlier this week they played two sets in L.A.
