British supergroup The Last Shadow Puppets kicked off the UK leg of tour last night with a kick ass cover of The Beatles‘ I Want You (She’s So Heavy). Playing at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge the band are gearing up to release their latest album Everything You’ve Come To Expect on Friday.
The band – made up of Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys), Miles Kane (The Rascals) James Ford (Simian Mobile Disco) and Zach Dawes (Mini Mansions) – gave a blistering seven minute rendition of the track. Splitting the vocal duties between them, Turner and Kane do a masterful job of paying tribute while adding their own flair.
The cover comes as the band also recently premiered yet another taste from the forthcoming album via Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show. Titled Miracle Aligner/em>, you can stream the track yourself below.
In the meantime though, why don’t you check out the footage of the cover for yourself here below.
