”Everything You’ve Come to Expect” the album of Alex Turner and pal Miles Kane was released on Apr 1, 2016. They will be releasing their second studio album under the name ”The Last Shadow Puppets.”
News.com.au talked about the release a few days back. So the wait is over and the fans can now enjoy this new album. “I began to reach the same conclusion to be honest,” said Turner. “I mean – the time had passed and chances are it was just going to be the thing we did 10 years ago and just a moment in time.”
YouTube has the video of this album uploaded. Rollingstone talked about the unveiling of this album. ”The second album he’s made with buddy Miles Kane as Last Shadow Puppets is drowsily gorgeous, soft-focus California burnout, á la Beck and art-pop icon Scott Walker” was their verdict.
Consequences of sound stated that the album had a good response in England. Since the banner was different, ”Rounding up the rest of the players, producer/drummer James Ford and string arranger Owen Pallett, shouldn’t have proven difficult, as Ford has worked on every Arctic Monkeys album and Pallett has proven a go-to string maestro over the last decade” is what they think.
“One thing led to another and a few things lined up that committed us to do this really,” clarified Turner. “On the one hand there was a bit of time off and the rest of my band were busy elsewhere, so it gave an opening or ‘a break in the weather’, which we’ve been calling it.”
“I guess no is the short answer but I’m sure once this is done we’ll get to talking about it. Matthew (Helders) is playing with Iggy Pop and Josh Homme at the minute and I went to watch them play a show last night and it was wonderful” he further added.
NME has the video uploaded for the single ”Miracle Aligner.” Consequence of sound talked about the publicity tour of Kane and Turner and mentioned that it did not turn out the way the fans had expected. They talked about the artists being under the influence of alcohol. “Ah, I didn’t smoke for a week,” he sighs, running his hand through an impressively slick pompadour, “and then it all came unraveled…” is what Turner stated, however, the interviewer found him slurring.
On the personal fron t, there were rumors of Alex Turner and Taylor Bagley breaking off. However, the latest grapevine report shows that they are together.
