Since the release of The Last Shadow Puppets’ debut album “The Age Of The Understatement” back in 2008, Alex Turner and Miles Kane have spent the years talking about their return but it never happen.
In 2009, Kane said the duo were looking to record music that year, while in 2010 he confirmed that they would start recording again after he’d wrapped up his solo record. The same assertion was made again in 2012. In 2013, meanwhile, with no material having emerged, Turner said that a second record was “on the cards”, that he didn’t know when, but he “certainly [didn’t] think it would be tomorrow”.
The perfect time for Alex Turner and Miles Kane to revive The Last Shadow Puppets, seems to be….right now!
There’s no official confirmation yet, but if anything, the fact that Owen Pallett deleted the following tweet, would seem to indicate that it’s true:
Simian Mobile Disco producer James Ford released their last (and only) album of ’60s-inspired pop, which as nominated for the Mercury Prize , and despite the occasional live reunion, everyone involved seemed fairly noncommittal about the prospect of new material.
