Album: Everything You've Come to Expect (2016)
  • This ominous song was originally meant to be a solo recording for The Last Shadow Puppet's Miles Kane after he left the Rascals in 2009. It became the first song the duo recorded for Everything You've Come to Expect having left their project dormant for eight years. "Something about ["Aviation"] seemed particularly 'Puppety,'" Kane told Spin. "So we eventually convinced [Simian Mobile Disco's] James Ford, the producer, to come do it again."
  • The video was directed by Saam Farahmand and shot on the same stretch of beach as the "Everything You've Come To Expect" clip.
  • Alex Turner expanded on how this came to be a Last Shadow Puppets song during an interview with Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 show. "There's a moment in the middle eight where we were harmonizing and at this point when we were writing it wasn't even necessarily going to be a Shadow Puppets record - we were just writing and maybe it was going to be Miles's next record," he said. "But there was something in the sound of the voices together and the melody and what was happening in the chords that seemed to elude to what the future could sound like for the next Shadow Puppets records."
