Fun loving Brit poppers The Kooks are on the prowl, having just announced a nation wide tour – a return to the States for the first time in three years – in conjunction with their new album, which hits stores September 13th via Astralwerks.

We’ve heard a tune from Junk Of The Heart, the light hearted poppy “Is It Me,” and now the band’s released the most upbeat, and Kooks-like song yet with the title track. “Junk Of The Heart” is a catchy, radio friendly single, sure to make the rounds on BBC Radio, one of those gems that makes you sway from side to side and even do a little finger snappin. Luke Pritchard sounds so jovial and positive, really leading the way on this one. Hear “Junk Of The Heart” after the jump.
