Following his raucous, sweat-drenched show at London’s Omeara earlier this month, Miles Kane today reveals his soulful new single ‘Caroline’. The track is the second cut from his highly-anticipated new album Change The Show, out 21st January 2022 on BMG Records.
Produced by Oscar Robertson and David Bardon, the horns-soaked track is an infectious motown inspired bop made for the ballroom dance floor. “‘Caroline’ is a song about reaching out to someone to tell them they are special and loved,” Miles said of the track. “It’s so important for us to communicate with each other at the good and the bad times, even when it’s hard to do so.” Listen to ‘Caroline’ HERE.
Following a chance “no frills session” with psych-rock duo Sunglasses For Jaws at the band’s Hackney studio, Miles’ fourth solo album Change The Show really began to take shape. “I saw myself in their energy, but also their taste and their knowledge of music,” Miles explains. “It was the first time I’d felt old!”
Opening with the honest soft croon of ‘Tears are Falling’, the album is a joyous ride from start to finish and features a surprising, but spectacular appearance from Grammy-nominated singer Corinne Bailey Rae for a duet on ‘Nothing’s Ever Gonna Be Good Enough’. It’s an album that best represents Miles himself: charmingly authentic, and like nothing else you’ll hear in pop music today.
A record for fans both new and old, Change The Show is the Miles Kane album we’ve all been waiting for. The apotheosis of his previous works, incorporating those classic rock and glam influences, but focusing more closely on Motown, soul, and Fifties R&B.
Known for his energetic performances and delivering blistering live shows, Miles kicks off his 2022 UK tour in Manchester at the Albert Hall on 28th January and ends with a raucous hometown show in Liverpool on 19th February at the O2 Academy 1. Support for the tour will come from Scottish songstress Brooke Combe who Miles recently dueted with in a soulful cover of Womack’s & Womack’s ‘Teardrops’. Miles also heads out on a run of European dates in April 2022.
