Cee Lo Green has made something of a reputation for himself this summer by peppering his performances with random, seemingly spontaneous karaoke covers that, by most accounts, drag down the show something awful. When he actually focuses on a cover, though, he can’t be beat (see: The Best Cover of 2010). That showed again on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge a few days ago, when he rocked through Miles Kane’s British hit “Inhaler.”
Since parting ways after their collaboration as The Last Shadow Puppets, Alex Turner and Miles Kane have been productive. Turner has released two albums with Arctic Monkeys, including this month’s Suck It and See, while Kane resigned as frontman of The Rascals to pursue a solo career, releasing his debut album in May. The duo reunited earlier this month when Kane opened two Arctic Monkeys gigs. Now they’ve crossed paths yet again with the Arctics’ new cover of “Colour of the Trap,” the title track of Kane’s new record.
