The Last Shadow Puppets rework tunes by Leonard Cohen and the Fall, along with tracks from their 2016 album, Everything You’ve Come to Expect, on new EP The Dream Synopsis. The EP is out December 2nd via Domino Records.
The band teased the EP with a moody video for their version of Cohen’s 1974 song “Is This What You Wanted.” Singer Alex Turner wanders around a stage filled with massive lights and backgrounds shifting between red and black. His voice builds from soothing crooning to full-throated belting, as the band navigates a dynamic arrangement filled with tempo and time shifts.
The Dream Synopsis includes new versions of the title-track and “Aviation,” both featured on their second LP, Everything You’ve Come to Expect. The EP also includes covers of the Fall’s “Totally Wired,” French singer-songwriter Jacques Dutronc’s “Le Cactus” and post-punk band Glaxo Babies’ “This Is Your Life.”
