Come next month, The Last Shadow Puppets will bookend their year-long fling with a new EP – ‘The Dream Synopsis’. In the last 12 months since they announced their raunchy comeback, released new album ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’, sullied festival stages worldwide with outrageous dancing, expressed their love for Tame Impala and now are celebrating their manic 2016 with a covers EP, with new versions of songs by the late Leonard Cohen, The Fall and Jacques Dutronc.
For the latter, they’ve continued their trend of dropping hilariously batshit videos in which Turner and Kane get a little loose. There’s mad moves, for sure, but this time it’s Turner’s attempts at singing in French which has got Twitter aquiver. Portions of Dutronc’s ‘Les Cactus’, are sung in French and though Turner’s attempt isn’t exactly perfect, it didn’t really stop fans getting all hot under the collar when he tried his hand at it.
