Miles Kane explains why he ditched the rest of Lana Del Rey’s songs from his new album

The pair collaborated on his recent single 'Loaded'

Miles Kane has explained why he hasn’t included more of his Lana Del Rey collaborations on his new record.

The Liverpool musician will release his latest solo album ‘Coup De Grace’ on June 8. He recently shared the record’s first single, ‘Loaded’, which was co-written with Del Rey and Jamie T.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Kane said: “I wanted the new album to be wild, very lively. Some of the songs I wrote were slow ballads – they were quite John Lennon-y. That includes other songs I wrote with Lana. I’m still proud of the songs, but they didn’t work for this album.”


Discussing his other collaborator on ‘Coup De Grace’, he added: “I definitely want to write more with Jamie and we might well work together on his next record.”

Recently, Kane compared the upcoming album to Adele. Speaking to BBC News, he said that it was “about a break-up”, adding: “I’m giving it the Adele one.”

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

Earlier this year, Kane, who is also a member of The Last Shadow Puppets alongside Alex Turner, explained how his collaborations with Del Rey came about. The pair bumped into each other at Jamie T’s LA gig in January 2017 and when she heard the two British musicians had some studio sessions booked in together, she asked if she could join them.
