Miles Kane’s former band The Little Flames to release ‘lost’ album

Fans can get their hands on 'The Day Is Not Today' on Friday

Miles Kane‘s former band The Little Flames are set to release a ‘lost’ album later this week.

According to Live 4 Ever, the Liverpool-based group will release ‘The Day Is Not Today’ on Friday (March 4) as part of a series of reissues from the Deltasonic label.

It will also be available as limited edition coloured vinyl on Record Store Day on Saturday, April 16.


Speaking of the LP, Kane says: “I’m excited to finally be able to drop the needle in this particular groove. I had a lot of good times with The Flames and I have very fond memories of making this record.


“Every time I listen to these songs I think of Alan Wills and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity he and Joe Fearon gave me. I’m delighted that everyone is able to now hear what we collectively created.”

Kane and Co recorded ‘The Day Is Not Today’ with producer Tore Johansson in Sweden, but a release date was never set thanks to the band’s split after mastering sessions in 2007.

Meanwhile, Kane recently revealed during a joint interview with his The Last Shadow Puppets bandmate Alex Turner Q why he decided against joining the Arctic Monkeys ten years ago.

Asked whether Kane ever came close to joining the Monkeys when the Sheffield rockers replaced former bassist Andy Nicholson in 2006, Turner replied: “Well… no. I think because that was when [Kane] just started [short-lived band] The Rascals. That was just all happening as well”.

Kane attributed his decision to never join Turner’s band as his desire to be in the lime light. He is quoted as saying: “I really wanted to be a frontman at that time. I hadn’t been a frontman. I had a hard-on for that.”


The Last Shadow Puppets recently announced details of their second album ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’, which will be released on April 1.
