'Cornerstone' will be released through charity shop

Arctic Monkeys are teaming up with Oxfam to release their new single 'Cornerstone'.

The Sheffield scamps, who also released their previous single 'Crying Lightning' through the charity shop, will release the track exclusively through Oxfam's top 50 music shops in the UK on November 16.

It will cost £4.99 and will come with the exclusive B-sides 'Catapult', Sketchead' and 'Fright Lined Dining Room', as well as a download code allowing fans to get MP3 versions of the songs.

Domino founder Laurence Bell said: "Our co-operation with Oxfam around the 'Crying Lightning' single was a great success for all parties and did plenty of good. We are extending the partnership for the release of 'Cornerstone', which will hopefully drive many more punters to both shop in and donate to Oxfam stores.”
