Alex Turner says The Last Shadow Puppets might release two more albums

Band are considering releasing either 'a trilogy or a four-part drama'

Alex Turner has suggested that The Last Shadow Puppets might release one, maybe even two, more albums in the future.

The band, completed by Miles Kane, released their debut album ‘The Age Of The Understatement’ in 2008. Their follow-up, ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’, will be released next week (April 1).

Arctic Monkeys frontman Turner previously told NME that that he and Kane intended on releasing a trilogy of albums, but now he’s hinted that they may end up extending it to a fourth release.


“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.”

Appearing on the morning show, Turner continued to describe the occasion as “some sort of graduation”. He said: “I’ve don’t think I’ve been on Breakfast Radio 2 before… Does this mean I’m not as wayward and unpredictable as I was when they kept me after the watershed? Dunno how I feel about it.”
