The track is the first to be taken from Kane’s upcoming new solo album, ‘Coup De Grace’ – listen to it below via Spotify.
Kane has also released a clip for the song, which he calls his “favourite video so far”. It sees the singer flip between moods as he roams a city at night. Watch beneath.
Speaking on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, the musician recently explained how he got both Lana Del Rey and Jamie T to work with him on ‘Loaded’.
“Last January, Jamie T was in LA doing a little gig and we’d planned to some writing together that we’d been saying we’d do for 10 years,” he said. “As I walked in [to the gig], Lana Del Rey was there.”
He continued to say he’d just gone through a break-up, which she picked up on and asked what he was doing that week. He told her of his writing plans, and she FaceTimed the pair the next day to ask if she could join them.
“We were like, ‘This is mental’,” he said. “So she came over and we finished writing ‘Loaded’ in that afternoon. There was a lot of tunes that were written in that time, but this one’s stuck around.
“It’s the perfect tune, I think,” he added. “It’s got it all for me.”
Discussing the rest of the album, he said fans could expect “more upbeat” songs, including “some real sort of high energy bangers, Ramones-style.” He also confirmed ‘Loaded’ was the only song Del Rey had worked on, and that ‘Coup De Grace’ does not feature any collaborations with his The Last Shadow Puppets bandmate Alex Turner.
Recently, Kane revealed the inspiration behind the new album’s title. He explained that it is a reference to the finishing move of the WWE wrestling star Finn Bálor. ‘Coup De Grace’ is expected to be released later this year.
