If you’re a fan of The Last Shadow Puppets you may be excited to hear that a new album could be in the works. When Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys fame and Miles Kane, former frontman of The Rascals, came together to make the Mercury Prize nominated album, ‘The Age of Understatement’ in 2008, they managed to create one of the best collaborations and side projects of the 21st Century so far.
Since then they have made many guest appearances on stage with one-another to perform The Last Shadow Puppets songs but aside from an eventful gig in Hyde Park during the summer, we haven’t heard an awful lot of news on The Last Shadow Puppets front of late.
Speaking to NME in 2013, Alex Turner discussed the possibility of working with Kane again the future “It’s something we’d both love to do at some point but I don’t know what that point is. I certainly don’t think its tomorrow. Miles is doing his thing and that’s going great. It’s like he’s become whole. Although he always was a superstar, wasn’t he?”
Owen Pallett, solo artist and member of Arcade Fire who previously arranged a string section for The Last Shadow Puppets’ debut, recently hinted on Twitter that progress on a new record was well underway and that it had reached “classic status”. His tweet has now been deleted but here’s what it said:
“That rare and thrilling moment when the record you’re working on crosses the threshold into Classic Status #tlsp2”
These claims are yet to be confirmed or denied by spokespersons for both Pallett and The Last Shadow Puppets.
