An era came to an end the night of the 26th of August, 2016 and the early morning hours of the 27th. However, this is not just the time to mourn, but to look back in retrospect and recall the best parts of that era. So, sit back and enjoy the ride.
The Beginning Of A New Era:
Now we’re going back, about 9 months ago, when it all officially started. You know what I’m talking about: the TLSP2 video, which came out on the 3rd of December, 2015. That’s when we knew something good was coming.
Without being quite able to wrap our heads around what had happened, about a month later (on the 10th of January, 2016) the first new single was released, it was the all time favourite ‘‘Bad Habits’‘.
Exactly three months later, on the 10th of March, 2016, the single ‘‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’‘ was out. It’s video confused us, not only with it’s nine different versions, but also with the story behind it. A woman, most likely a bride, was dancing on a coast around Alex and Miles, who were buried in the sand at the time of the tide. That said, only six days later (on the 16th of March,2016), the third single, -the all too familiar and reminder of the first album- ‘’Aviation’’, was out. The video that accompanies the song, is a prequel to the ‘‘EYCTE’‘ one and elaborates the story further.
The last, but not least single to be released was ‘‘Miracle Aligner’‘. This time, the pattern was broken, as the song was introduced during an interview for Beats1 (on the 28th of March, 2016) and didn’t come with a video. Nevertheless, two months later, the video came out, on the 17th of May, 2016. Shot in ‘‘Cafe Royal’‘ in London, the video shows a very tanned Alex Turner, showing off his ”dance moves” along with Miles Kane.
“What’s wrong with that aladdin kid, everyone knows you can’t trust a genie.”: Dean’s voice sounded genuin concerned. “Honey it’s just a movie for kids.” : you looked amused at your boyfriend, his eyes not leaving the screen.
Dean was quiet al trough the rest of the movie and only when the endcredits appeared he spoke again:” well i don’t need a flying rugg or a monkey to get an incredibly beautiful girl.” His eyes locked with yours and you couldn’t hold back a smile. “But i still don’t trust that genie!”
