Speaking in an interview which you can read in full in this week’s issue of NME, Kane said he thinks he and Turner will resurrect the band after the release of his debut solo album, which is due out next spring.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, definitely,” he said when asked if the duo would reconvene. “After I’ve done this stuff, I guess. I’ve got a few things up my sleeve.”
Kane has worked with Super Furry Animals‘ Gruff Rhys on the solo album, and although he admitted that he thinks The Last Shadow Puppets are “a tough act to follow”. However, he is confident that his new album will rank alongside the band’s 2008 debut ‘The Age Of The Understatement’.
“I’ve made a record that does stand up to that,” he declared. “It’s musically and lyrically as good, and that’s all I can do.”
