The Second Last Shadow Puppets Album Is Finished

Last month, string wizard Owen Pallett let slip that he was working on the follow-up to the Last Shadow Puppets’ 2008 album The Age Of Understatement, the first and only LP by the team-up of Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner, Miles Kane, and Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford. Although there was no official confirmation or announcement and Pallett quickly deleted the revelatory tweet, it seems that a new album is indeed on the way. In an interview with Chilean music site Rock & Pop, Ford, the band’s drummer and producer, says, “This year, I’ve just done a Last Shadow Puppets record, which is the guy from Arctic Monkeys and Miles…So we did the follow-up album to that. That’s the last thing I did.” He confirms that the album is finished, and “it’ll be out next year sometime.” The actual article is in Spanish, but you can listen to the audio of the interview (in English) here.
