Last Shadow Puppets announce Arcade Fire-featuring single

The London Metropolitan Orchestra appear on track

Alex Turner and Miles Kane‘s band The Last Shadow Puppets have announced the release of a new single.

‘My Mistakes Were Made For You’ is taken from the duo’s debut album ‘The Age Of The Understatement’, which is up for the Nationwide Mercury Prize next week (September 9), and features the London Metropolitan Orchestra as conducted by Final Fantasy/Arcade Fire violinist Owen Pallett.

B-sides for the single, out October 20, feature a live orchestrated version of the duo’s song ‘Separate And Ever Deadly’ along with a live cover version of both Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra‘s classic ‘Paris Summer’ and ‘My Little Red Book’ – a track written by Burt Bacharach.
