The rocker spoke to Radio X's Gordon Smart about his new Blame It On The Summertime single, and revealed when we can expect album four.

Miles Kane has revealed he hopes to record his new album by the end of this year.

The Scouse rocker revealed a new single this week called Blame It On The Summertime, and gave us an update on the follow-up to 2018's Coup De Grace.

Asked by Radio X's Gordon Smart when we can expect to hear his new record, Kane replied: "I'm going back in the studio the next couple of weeks, and there's a couple more songs that are pretty much there that we're gonna go and finish off production-wise, but in terms of writing and that there's a lot of songs there. It's just sort of fine tuning it."

The Inhaler singer added: "I'd say that this [Blame It On The ] Summertime will be on the next record. My Plan A is to record the album by Christmas [...] and if we stick to that I'd be happy..."

Kane also discussed the new single, which he revealed is about a "relationship that can kinda get confusing and toxic, and how the summertime can help you forget that feeling."

His Crispy Tour will see him visit the likes of Manchester's Neighbourhood and London's Electric Ballroom.
