Miles Kane has confirmed that he is working with Paul Weller on his new album.

Rumours of a collaboration between Kane and the Modfather have circulated for some time and, in an interview between the pair which you can read in this week's issue of NME, the Last Shadow Puppets man confirmed that they would be collaborating on a track for his new LP.

He said:

We'll just see what happens when we get into that room. We're going into Paul's place and I can't wait to get in there and throw some ideas around. It's like mod heaven, his studio.


Weller also revealed why he was a fan of Kane, explaining that the singer's live performances reminded him of himself. "It's just good to see someone giving it one," he said. "So many bands are drippy, it's nice to see someone perform really, there's a lot to be said for that. So I recognised the energy in that and the commitment to what you're doing."
