The band that kick-started Miles Kane’s career, The Little Flames, are set to release an album that has until now been lost in the vaults of unreleased music (nestled somewhere in between Detox and Songs from the Black Hole we presume).
The Day Is Not Today was supposed to be The Little Flames’ debut album, after releasing a string of singles. The band recorded the album with producer Tore Johansson in Sweden, but split in pursuit of other projects in 2007 – before the album ever managed to see the light of day.
Speaking to Live4Ever Miles Kane said “I’m excited to finally be able to drop the needle in this particular groove, I had a lot of good times with The Flames and I have very fond memories of making this record.”
He continued by saying: “Every time I listen to these songs I think of Alan Wills and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity he and Joe Fearon gave me. I’m delighted that everyone is able to now hear what we collectively created.”
The album is now finally getting a release as part of the re-launch of indie-label Deltasonic. The Day is Not Today is getting a release this Friday, March 4th 2016 (which is not today), and for vinyl lovers, the album is getting pressed on coloured wax for Record Store Day on April 16th. Meanwhile Miles Kane and Alex Turner’s supergroup The Last Shadow Puppets’ album Everything You’ve Come to Expect is out April 1st.
