Domino announced the release of the debut single by The Last Shadow Puppets, entitled ‘The Age Of The Understatement’, on Monday the 14th of April 2008. The album, of the same name, was to follow a week later on the 21st of April. (May 6th in North America).
‘The Age Of The Understatement’ is a wide-screen, bold and brilliant introduction to the band. The Last Shadow Puppets are Alex Turner (from Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane (from The Rascals). Firm friends ever since Arctic Monkeys toured with Kane’s previous group, The Little Flames, the pair were so inspired by listening to the likes of Scott Walker, early Bowie and David Axelrod, that they hatched a plan. The result is ‘The Age Of The Understatement’.
The single features exclusive b-sides, including the band’s ‘Two Hearts In Two Weeks’ and interpretations of David Bowie’s ‘In The Heat Of The Morning’ and Billy Fury’s ‘Wondrous Place’.
‘The Age Of The Understatement’ will be available on CD (RUG288CD), 2 x 7’s (RUG288 & 228X) and via digital download (RUG288D). The digital single will be available from the 7th of April.

Interesting marketing concept. Nice single. Give it a listen.
