Konk (album)

Konk is the second album by English indie rock band The Kooks, released on April 14, 2008 on Virgin Records. Produced by Tony Hoffer, the album is named after the London studio where it was recorded, which is the property of Ray Davies. It was also released in a double disc version featuring a second CD, entitled RAK, which includes seven new songs not included on the album, and an alternate version of the album track "See the Sun"..

This second album was named after Konk studios, where it was recorded. The special edition RAK features the same album cover, apart from the blue 'Konk' sign being red. It also seems that Konk has vocals provided by Luke Pritchard whilst RAK seems to be mainly Hugh Harris on vocals.

On March 14, 2008 the album was leaked on the Internet, one month prior to its release date.

"Do You Wanna" was featured on The CW's Gossip Girl, while "Love It All" was featured on the Chuck episode "Chuck Versus the Seduction."
