French actress Clémence Poésy sings a duet with Miles Kane on his just released solo-album. You might know Miles from Last Shadow Puppets (their album cover is so gorgeous) and The Rascals. Clémence is of course in the Harry Potter movies, 127 Hours and In Bruges. If you see this video of them doing the song (in English) together, you migth think they’re long time friends. They are not, Miles had not heard from Clémence prior to this duet. Someone from the record company met the actress in Paris, said Miles was looking for a singer and askes if she was up for it. Kane’s reaction: ‘You stupid prick!‘. But it all turned out well. In some reviews, the song is compared to Serge-and-Jane-duets. Hmm.
