The Last Shadow Puppets Return With New Single ‘Bad Habits’



Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner and Miles Kane have returned to their Last Shadow Puppets guise to release a second album, surely among the year’s most anticipated releases.

The pair’s last album together was 2008’s The Age Of The Understatement and like it, the new one is once again produced by Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford and Owen Pallett returns on arrangement duties. ‘Bad Habits’ is the first single from the album, and it’s loud, brash and urgent, with a spiky aggression to its slithering groovy core and insistent bassline, matched with Owen Pallett’s swirling Bond-esque string flourishes. It’s a pretty fiery return, alright.

An official release date for the so far unnamed second album has yet to be revealed, but so far all signs have pointed to a Spring 2016 release. The band are also playing Coachella so expect more live dates throughout the year. For now, check out ‘Bad Habits’ below.


(Video) Simian Mobile Disco – Put Your Hands Together

Simian Mobile Disco are releasing their brand new album Unpatterns on May 14th via Wichita Recordings.

The duo have unveiled the video for their latest single, ‘Put Your Hands Together’. Taken from the forthcoming third record, it is seven minutes of mesmerizing and gently hypnotic electronic sounds. I really liked SMD’s last effort Temporary Pleasure so let’s hope the the quality of the third album is on a par with it.

Check the track & video below, it is directed and animated by Hans Lo for ISO studios.

Simian Mobile Disco – Gizzard

‘Gizzard’ is the fifth release in the series of 12″ on Simian Mobile Disco‘s new imprint Delicacies. 

‘Gizzard’ is a deep dark beast of slow burning techno with hard-edged analogue beats, building to climactic finish. It is a quite similar formula to ‘10,000 Horses Can’t Be Wrong’. The 12″ also features a guest remix from Irish producers Psycatron , a tasty and lively take on the original.

‘Gizzard’ out now on limited edition 12″ vinyl and will get a digital release on July 25th.
