What we know so far: Alex Turner and Miles Kane, frontmen with Arctic Monkeys and The Rascals respectively, will release an album this spring. Recorded in France, The Age of the Understatement was produced by James Ford and features strings arrangements from Final Fantasy man Owen Pallett. The news, (thanks, boards) – Turner and Kane have uploaded the video to what appears to be the album’s opening title track onto their website, here.

The core duo have spoken of their admiration for the grandiose work of artists like Scott Walker and David Bowie, and the track featured on their site undoubtedly shares that, at least, riding in on a grand phalanx of rhythm and strings that gallop not unlike they did in Muse’s ‘Knights of Cydonia’.
