Albums Of The Week: Miles Kane | One Man Band

Proving that you actually can go home again, The Last Shadow Puppets’ co-founding singer-guitarist cranks the volume & goes for broke on his rambunctious fifth solo LP.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Miles Kane has returned with the blistering new album One Man Band.

The co-frontman of The Last Shadow Puppets returns to his guitar hero best on One Man Band as he focuses on big hooks and even bigger anthems. Sharp, infectious, urgent and packed to the brim with singalong moments, it’s Miles on the top of his game. A deeply personal record, Miles returned to Liverpool to work on the album, finding himself reflecting on his journey.

“Making the album back in Liverpool with my family really helped to bring this out of me,” he says of the writing process. “We left no stone unturned. Sometimes you have to go backwards to go forwards, and this album helped me rediscover why I picked up a guitar in the first place. This album is like a brand new yet somehow familiar leather jacket; a comforting melting pot of all the music that has inspired and continues to inspire me every day.”

Opening the record, Troubled Son is raw, pop-driven indie, made for festival stages. “It’s about the struggle we all have in life,” Kane says. “Sometimes we have our shit together and sometimes we don’t. This is me acknowledging my faults and my fears and showing the journey I’m taking as I try to figure it all out.”
