Miles Kane has admitted that he has no idea who Harry Potter actress Clémence Poésy was before she had agreed to sing backing vocals on his debut solo album 'The Colour Of The Trap'.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Kane said he was annoyed with his record label after they had offered the actress the chance to contribute to his album track 'Happenstance'.

He said: "We were looking for a girl for my song 'Happenstance' then someone from the label met her at a party in Paris. He mentioned that I had a song and would she be up for doing it? Then he got back to me and I asked him, 'What's an actress going to be able to do? She's not going to be able to sing'. I was like, 'What are you doing asking her you stupid prick?'"

Kane then admitted that he change his mind once he heard Poésy sing. "Then she demoed the track and it sounded great so I got her over to the UK," he said. "We went into the studio and did it live and it was amazing. It really suits the tune. I had never heard of her."

'The Colour Of The Trap' was released on Monday (May 9).
