MILES KANE ‘DON’T FORGET WHO YOU ARE’: “IT HAD TO SOUND INCREDIBLY DIRECT”
Listen to Miles Kane’s sparkling new track ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’.
The one and only Miles Kane is back June 3rd with his eagerly anticipated second LP ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’ on Columbia Records.
Miles says: “The one thing I wanted for the new album was that there had to be no fat on any of the songs. They needed to sound really lean. The blueprint for it, before I’d even gone for the rock n’ roll and glam-rock vibe, was that it had to sound incredibly direct.”
Produced by Ian Broudie (The Zutons, Echo and the Bunnymen) the record features co-writes with Broudie, as well as XTC’s Andy Partridge, Paul Weller and Kid Harpoon.
The album is available in standard CD, vinyl and digital download and deluxe edition with three extra tracks which includes 2012’s Record Store Day release ‘First Of My Kind’ and ‘Start Of Something Big’, which was co-written with Weller and recorded with Miles’s band.
Miles Kane will play 11 UK dates in May and June, with the album launch party taking place at London’s Dingwalls on Friday June 7th.
Miles is also set to play the John Peel stage at Glastonbury this year with his stellar band; George Moran – rhythm guitar/backing vocals, Jay Sharrock – drums, Ben Parsons – Keys and Phillip Anderson – bass.
The album is available to pre-order via Ticketmaster from April 3rd at 9am.
