Former Oasis guitarist on new album
Miles Kane has been working with Noel Gallagher on his upcoming solo album.
Far from a household name, Miles Kane is one of the country’s most respected songwriters.
From The Little Flames to The Last Shadow Puppets the Liverpool singer has impressed with several albums of acclaimed material.
Turning solo, Miles Kane could be set to achieve mainstream recognition. With his new single ‘Inhaler’ gaining some important airplay, hype is beginning to nestle around his debut solo album.
Recently playing a solo show at London’s Water Rats, Miles Kane told fans that Noel Gallagher features on a track named ‘My Fantasy’.
Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, the singer explained that he was “honoured” by the songwriter’s appearance. “I texted him (Gallagher) saying, ‘I need some icing on this tune,’ and he said, ‘Icing is what I do very well,’” he said.
“I’m very honoured that he did it. It’s a nice little touch.”
Meanwhile, Miles Kane has returned the favour by playing guitar on Noel Gallagher’s as yet unfinished solo album. The one time Rascals guitarist joined the Oasis exile for a series of recent sessions.
“I play guitar on one of his songs for his album” he said. “I was only in there for a couple of hours. I did my thing. That was in return for me going on his one.”
However fans shouldn’t expect to hear the new material any time soon. Noel Gallagher is taking an extended break to be with his family, and warned fans in September that any new material is a long way off.
“I’m moving house and my missus is nine months pregnant so I’m not doing anything until well into next year” he told the BBC.
Miles Kane is due to release ‘My Fantasy’ in the New Year.
