About this item
Miles Kane releases his third solo album ‘Coup De Grace’, a blistering exercise in modern rock ‘n’ roll, August 10th on Virgin EMI.
Currently in the midst of a rip roaring UK club tour with his explosive new band, Miles has been previewing several album highlights including the current single ‘Loaded’ written by Miles, Lana Del Rey and Jamie T; the T Rex inspired ‘Cry On My Guitar’ and the insanely catchy ‘Too Little Too Late’.
‘Coup De Grace’, is Miles’ first solo album since 2013’s ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’ and well worth the wait. Recorded in LA, produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent), Miles wrote much of the album with Jamie T.
“This record for me is the most important record I’ve made to date” said Miles. “It’s been 5 years in the making, a lot of emotion and excitement has gone into making this album!”
Since joining The Little Flames 14 years ago, Miles has seen the pop climate change considerably but still believes the magic’s in the music. He’s like an excitable schoolboy who just went to his first gig. His enthusiasm is contagious. “For me to really love someone, I have to want to be them,” he enthuses. “You want to look the way they look, move the way they move. To me, going to my first gigs, it was always otherworldly: how do I get there?”
Barry says: Arm-waving rock anthems, distorted bass and thumping glam hooks from Miles Kane, brilliantly bombastic and full of swagger, there's no way you won't be nodding your head to this one. A bold and confident outing, bursting with energy.
