Arctic Monkeys dropped the cornfield-set music video for "One for the Road" several weeks ago, but the Brits still haven't shared the single on vinyl. The 7-inch arrives on December 10 via Domino, and it comes backed by "You're So Dark," a potent B-side that complements the svelte R&Bruisers found on the Monkeys' outstanding fifth album, AM. Frontman Alex Turner can't help but be drawn to a not-so-sunny young lady — the type of girl who fancies H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and cemetery gates. "Got that obsession with death," Turner sings. "I saw you driving your Prius / And even that was Munster Koach-esque."

Stream "You're So Dark" above (lyric video via Stereogum) and pre-order the "One for the Road" 7-inch through the Arctic Monkeys' website.
