Last month, we got word that the Last Shadow Puppets, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner’s side project with Miles Kane, had finished recording the follow-up to their 2008 debut The Age Of Understatement. Owen Pallett let it slip, in an interview with a Chilean website, that he’d done some string arrangements for the LP. And today, we get confirmation from the band itself; the new album is coming next spring. As Pitchfork points out, the band has shared a quick teaser for the album, which is full of ominous music and chopped-up footage of the band members in the studio, looking cool. We don’t get a whole lot of indication of how the record might sound, but it’s nice to see that, yes, this is definitely happening. Check it out below.
Now, let’s all spend the day feeling vaguely annoyed that we will never look as cool as these guys.
