Not many bands can say that they've played in the back of a van but Mystery Jets can.
Following their triumphant sold out performance at Brixton Academy earlier this year, the five-piece from London have treated their fans to a special one-off performance.
Performing for Bands In Transit in association with Ford, Blaine Harrison and co. showed a different side to their live skills.
The group performed their latest single Greatest Hits which is taken from their fifth studio album Radlands.
Band in a van: Mystery Jets perform their latest single Greatest Hits
As he sings the lyrics, Harrison tells a story which deals with the dividing of a
record collection following the end of a relationship.
Mystery Jets released their debut album Making Dens back in 2006, and ever since they have cemented their position as one of Britain's best loved bands.
To record Radlands, the band set up a home recording studio in a country house by the Colorado river in the Westlake area of Austin, Texas, last year.
Their writing and recording sessions lasted two months, and at the end this time, they returned to the UK to play the summer festivals.
Harrison then took a trip to California in early July to get inspiration and imagery for the songs.
One of the tracks, Sister Everett, is said to be based on the band's experience when they met a missionary from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on the plane ride over to Texas.
The singer explained that she was trying to convert band member William Rees and handed him her business card as they landed.
The group completed their UK tour in May but unfortunately before the release of Radlands in April, it was announced that Kai Fish would be leaving the band, with bassist Pete Cochrane taking his place.
Rizzle Kicks, Ed Sheeran and Bombay Bicycle Club are just some of the other artists who have all already jumped in the back of the van and performed their best tracks acoustically for Bands In Transit with Ford.
