The Last Shadow Puppets released their long-awaited second album Everything You’ve Come To Expect earlier this year, touring in support of the LP hitting every major festival throughout summer ’16 and if you’ve managed to catch them live then you’ve probably heard their brooding cover of Leonard Cohen’s Is This What You Wanted. That live favorite not only has been given a the video treatment but will be featured on their new EP, The Dream Synopsis, which also includes two reworking of tracks The Dream Synopsis and Aviation. The new EP will be released December 2nd on limited edition red vinyl.
The new video features the band, the band on a retro stage straight out of the ’70s. Alex Turner is sleazily wandering around the band and as his voice builds from soothing crooner in a live lounge to mercurial full-throated belting, all the while the band interplays charismatically. You can’t turn away. Watch below.
