The Last Shadow Puppets have shared a new song from their upcoming album ‘Everything You’ve Come to Expect’.
Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner and collaborator Miles Kane premiered ‘Miracle Aligner’ during their appearance on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show earlier today.
The pair also discussed the recording of their follow-up to 2008’s ‘The Age of the Understatement’.
Speaking of his approach to singing on the duo’s new record, Turner told Lowe: “I was reaching for something vocally that I hadn’t done so before.”
The Last Shadow Puppets will release their second album, ‘Everything You’ve Come to Expect’, this Friday (April 1).
Turner has previously suggested that the new album might form part of a series.
“We’re either going to make it a trilogy or a four-part drama,” Turner told Chris Evans on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show this morning (March 23). “I haven’t decided yet.”
Earlier this month, Kane apologised to a journalist he offended with a “ill judged” sexual remark.
Kane was interviewed by Spin alongside Alex Turner as the pair promote the new Last Shadow Puppets album ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’.
Writer Rachel Brodsky met the pair in a hotel lobby in New York to discuss their return but was left feeling uncomfortable by Kane’s behaviour.
Brodsky refers to remarks about Kane made in the interview about both butter and Alex Turner’s crotch. When she asked the duo what they had planned for after they had finished, Kane replied by asking her: “Do you want to go upstairs?”
When she declined, a publicist for the pair noted: “I did warn you when you arrived that they were on kind of a downward spiral.” Kane added that he was joking about the request.
The Last Shadow Puppets begin their UK tour in Cambridge on Thursday (March 24). The stint will extend to April, before Turner and Kane return for additional headline dates in June and July.
