    Alex Turner has used Arctic Monkeys' current break to launch a completely different band called the Last Shadow Puppets. A duo featuring his old friend Miles Kane (also of the Rascals—well, the new Rascals, not the blue-eyed soul band), the Puppets will release their debut LP through Domino on May 6.

    The Age of the Understatement features the production of James Ford—a longtime Monkeys cohort and half of Simian Mobile Disco—and the conductor skills of Owen Pallett (a.k.a. Final Fantasy), who helmed the 22-piece London Metropolitan Orchestra on several tracks. A single for the album's title track streets on April 15 in digital and 7-inch vinyl formats.

    The Age of the Understatement:

    1. The Age of the Understatement
    2. Standing Next to Me
    3. Calm Like You
    4. Separate and Ever Deadly
    5. The Chamber
    6. Only the Truth
    7. My Mistakes Were Made for You
    8. Black Plant
    9. I Don't Like You Any More
    10. In My Room
    11. Meeting Place
    12. The Time Has Come Again
