Arctic Monkeys sell through Oxfam

Arctic Monkeys have announced they will be releasing their new single through Oxfam.

Crying Lightning, released as a limited edition 7″ and features a cover of the Nick Cave track Red Right Hand will hit every Oxfam store in the country from August 17th and marks the first time Oxfam shops have sold a new release single for 25 years.

The founder of the Monkeys’ label Domino, Laurence Bell said of the news:

“Oxfam is a Great British institution and it’s a delight to be working together on this project. There are about seven hundred Oxfam shops in the UK, many of them in high streets that once housed a record shop, so as well as raising some money for a great cause we are able to get vinyl back onto more of the nation’s high streets, which feels good.”
