ALEX TURNER has announced that his departure from songwriting is drawing to a close.
Speaking in recent interviews, it became apparent that one of the modern era’s most pedigreed and consistently eloquent writers had taken a step back from pouring his time into crafting new tracks, with the Arctic Monkeys frontman informing Radio X that there was no immediate plans to follow up 2013’s AM.
Having polished off The Last Shadow Puppets’ sophomore record with Miles Kane and wilfully undertaking co-writing duties for LA-based songstress Alexandra Savior’s debut, Turner has conceded that he hasn’t created anything new ‘for a while’
However, his new interview with Matt Wilkinson on Beats1 indicated that this is set to change.
Speaking in London’s Alexandra Palace; the venue in which Turner and Kane will perform two shows under the guise of The Last Shadow Puppets and bring their lengthy UK tour to the end, he has stated that he now ‘feels bad’ that he hasn’t written for a while and plans to ‘get back on the piano, get back up to writing a song a week.’
Also revealing that Everything You’ve Came To Expect standout ‘Miracle Aligner’ began during writing sessions for Savior’s album, listen to the full interview below via Apple Music:
