Published Jan 07, 2009From the looks of things, the Last Shadow Puppets may be enlisting Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys to record a second album, though not right away.
Miles Kane, the half of the UK duo that's not Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner, revealed in a recent interview that the follow-up to last year's The Age of Understatement would have to wait until he completes work on a new LP with his other project, the Rascals.
"Me and Alex Turner will definitely make another Last Shadow Puppets album but not straight away," Kane told the Daily Star newspaper. "I want to devote myself to making a very large second album with the Rascals first."
He went on to say that he and Turner are aiming to start work on the new Last Shadow Puppets record in March and added that the Scott Walker-worshipping duo had recently been in contact with Rhys to do the record.
"I would like to work with Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals and Neon Neon. I suggested the idea to him recently and he was into it," Kane said. "I don't want the next record to be just guitar music. I need to bring width to our sound. We need to work with a creative producer who can push us with strange instruments in the studio."
In related news, Turner is still reportedly working on Arctic Monkeys' follow-up to 2007's Favourite Worst Nightmare, but there is no firm release date or title yet for that album.
