Owen Pallett Reveals Work On Second Last Shadow Puppets LP
It looks like there might be another Last Shadow Puppets album on the way. The team-up of Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner, Miles Kane, and Simian Mobile Disco producer James Ford released their last (and only) album of ’60s-inspired Spaghetti Western pop, the Mercury Prize-nominated The Age Of Understatement, back in 2008, and despite the occasional live reunion, everyone involved seemed fairly noncommittal about the prospect of new material. But in a now-deleted tweet from a couple of days ago, string maestro and frequent hired gun Owen Pallett — who contributed the string arrangements on The Age Of Understatement — reignited the flames of anticipation:
There’s no official confirmation yet, but if anything, the fact that he deleted the tweet would seem to indicate that it’s true.
