In 2008, Miles Kane collaborated with Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner on what has become an enduringly enjoyable record that appeared to be the overflowing of creativity from two rising stars. And though England might be a different story, Arctic Monkeys hasn’t really panned out over in America as some (the British media) had expected. Meanwhile, Miles Kane also felt disappointment with the reception of his band, The Rascals, and left them in 2009.
So what began as something on the side could end up growing into something much more, probably depending on the next releases from both these artists. Kane, speaking with NME, said “Yeah, yeah, yeah, definitely…After I’ve done this stuff, I guess. I’ve got a few things up my sleeve,” when asked about The Last Shadow Puppets possibility of return.
Kane’s solo album is due in the spring, and features Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals on several tracks. But the news of future music from The Last Shadow Puppets should spark joy to the majority of people who heard their debut, The Age Of The Understatement.
