Miles Kane has said that his new album will be "big, positive and upbeat".

The singer, who released his solo debut LP 'The Colour Of The Trap' in 2011, told BBC Newsbeat that he plans to release his second record "before the summer" and compared the album's sound to his old single 'Inhaler'.

"That was sort of the blueprint, to make this real upbeat, heavy, catchy album," he revealed. "That's what I've done. I can't wait for it to get out there."

In January of this year, Kane revealed that he had been working on the album with his hero Paul Weller and insisted they had produced "some crackers" in the studio. You can watch footage of the pair performing the track 'Give Up' together at last week's NME Awards 2013 by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

Speaking previously about the track, Kane described it as a "great song" and added: "It does exactly what it says on the tin. We did about four songs together and we're gonna record one more… It's a slowie and we're gonna try and do that as a live thing in [London's] Sarm Studios".

Last month, meanwhile, the singer unveiled the video for his new single, 'Give Up', which featured on a four-track EP released digitally and as a limited 7". The title song was co-written by Kid Harpoon and produced by Ian Broudie of The Lightning Seeds.

The 'Give Up' tracklisting is as follows:
