MILES KANE has joined forces with Corinne Bailey Rae on his new single NOTHING’S EVER GONNA BE GOOD ENOUGH, taken from his highly anticipated new album CHANGE THE SHOW, due to be released by BMG on 21 January 2022.
Miles says of the undeniably catchy and infectious horns-soaked, piano-driven duet, “This is all about that feeling of giving everything you’ve got to something or someone but feeling like you’re never quite getting the same energy back. And how sometimes the harder you try and reach for it, the further away it becomes.” Corinne adds, “I love this song and can’t get it out of my head. I’m so pleased to be on it with my dear friend Miles.”
Born in the second lockdown whilst separately swilling rosé, Corinne had suggested the idea of a duet after the pair had been sending each other songs one evening. A few twists of the lyrics later and the pair were a couple, caught between flirting and an argument. “I love the back and forth between us,” says Miles. “I wanted an Ike and Tina Turner vibe, not a gratuitous guest. Unfortunately, we had to record it remotely, but we’ll perform it on stage together, I’m sure.”
The release comes alongside a nostalgic and playful video directed by Lisa Clarkson and filmed at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club and Walton Pier, starring two kids as a young Miles and Corinne.
Opening with the honest soft croon of Tears Are Falling, the CHANGE THE SHOW album is a joyous ride from start to finish. An album that best represents Miles himself; charmingly authentic, and like little else you’ll hear in pop music today. A record for fans both new and old, CHANGE THE SHOW is the Miles Kane album we’ve been waiting for; the apotheosis of his previous works, incorporating those classic rock and glam influences, but focusing more closely on Motown, soul, and Fifties RnB.
