Miles Kane has confirmed that he will reunite with Arctic Monkeys' singer Alex Turner to record again as The Last Shadow Puppets, possibly as soon as at the end of this year.

'The Colour Of The Trap' singer is currently on tour with the Arctic Monkeys across Australia and has said that he and Turner will record the follow-up to 2008's 'The Age Of The Understatement' "when the time is right".

He told Noise11.com when asked about the status of The Last Shadow Puppets: "There will be [another record] when the time is right. We'll both know together when it's right. We're both enjoying our own things, but we're still working together and when the time is right we'll go and do that again." When asked if he could put a date on it, Kane replied: "Maybe the end of this year, maybe next year."

He also revealed that he didn't actually expect to make a full album as The Last Shadow Puppets in the first place and that the speed with which he and Turner wrote and recorded 'The Age Of The Understatement' came as a complete shock.

He said of this: "We didn't even expect to make a record. We were just these two young guys who had written these songs and went to France for two weeks to record and see what would happen. In two weeks we recorded 11 songs. We have a great connection, me and Alex. It is a great partnership."

Miles Kane tours the UK in April next year. The singer will play eight dates, kicking off at Nottingham Rock City on April 20 and wrapping up with a date at the London HMV Forum on April 28.
