The Last Shadow Puppets, Arctic Monkey’s frontman, Alex Turner’s new side project, will release a cover of the David Bowie rarity “In The Heat Of The Morning” as a B-side to their debut single.

The song was originally included on the early Bowie compilation album, “The World Of David Bowie”, released in 1970.

“The Age of the Understatement”, available online this week and on double 7” and CD on April 14, also includes a cover of Billy Fury’s “Wonderous Place”.

The album of the same name is the collaborative effort of Alex Turner and The Rascals frontman, Miles Kane who met when Kane’s former band supported the Arctic Monkeys on tour.

“It all started with a polo neck,” said Kane in the latest issue (May 2008) of Uncut. “Even when we joked about doing an album together, we said that’d be the cover: Alex would be at a grand piano, there’d be a bit of music manuscript, a cigarette burning in an ashtray, and I’d be wearing a cream polo neck”.
