The Kooks surprised many with their offbeat comeback single, Down, which had more than a hint of Pharrell and Justin Timberlake about it - but there's was no doubt that it worked a treat, sounding fresh and exciting.

The band further increase anticipation ahead of the release of their fourth album and a May UK tour with another brand new track, Hooray for Henry, which is one of three additional tracks on the Down EP and available to hear exclusively on ShortList.com.

Like Down, it's beat-driven, but in a different way: this time there's echoes of The Stones and Primal Scream instead - take a listen and see what you think.

The Down EP is released April 20th
