Miles Kane compares his new album to Adele

"I'm giving it the Adele one"

Miles Kane has said that his new record is his Adele album.

Kane’s upcoming new solo album, ‘Coup De Grace’, is out this summer. It features the Jamie T and Lana Del Rey collaboration ‘Loaded’.

Speaking to BBC News, Last Shadow Puppets man Kane said that “most of it is about a break-up,” adding: “I’m giving it the Adele one.”

“But also, I’m a massive fan of wrestling and [the title was inspired by] favourite wrestler’s finishing manoeuvre,” he continued, referring to WWE star Finn Bálor’s signature move.

“Lyrically it’s very personal and the delivery of the vocal is quite different for me. On the verses, there’s a lot more words than what I would do normally and then it opens up on the chorus.”

“It’s just a real mid-tempo, heavy ‘get your walk on’ tune, you know?”

Speaking previously to Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, the musician 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.”
