Alex Turner resurfaces this spring, not with a third Arctic Monkeys record, but alongside pal Miles Kane of The Rascals.
The duo will trade as The Last Shadow Puppets and the title track of their forthcoming debut affirms the 22-year-old Turner is too bright and too ambitious to be satisfied with recording just more of the same. Cue unexpected spaghetti western motif and sweeping orchestration; it'll be interesting what other surprises Turner has in store.
The Age of the Understatement, the album, will be released April 21 in the UK and May 6 in North America.
