Watch The Last Shadow Puppets’ swaggering video for Leonard Cohen cover ‘Is This What You Wanted’

Band set to release new EP in December

The Last Shadow Puppets have shared a video for a cover of Leonard Cohen track ‘Is This What You Wanted’.

Alex Turner and Miles Kane released second album ‘Everything You’ve Come to Expect’ in April, and it went straight to Number One in the UK Album Chart.

They have now shared a dramatic video of them performing the 1974 Cohen song against a glossy backdrop. Watch below.


The song will feature on an upcoming covers EP coming from the band on December 2, titled ‘The Dream Synopsis’. The EP, recorded live in one day at Future-Past Studios, Hudson NY, is to feature new versions of tracks ‘Aviation’ and ‘The Dream Synopsis’, as well as covers of The Fall, Jacques Dutronc and Glaxo Babies.

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

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 later told Chris Evans on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show. “I haven’t decided yet.”
