British indie rocker Miles Kane has released his new single “Baggio“.
Inspired by Italian footballing legend Roberto Baggio, the song is the second taste of Kane’s upcoming album One Man Band, produced by Kane’s cousin James Skelly (The Coral), due to be released on August 4 via Modern Sky UK. Pre-order your copy here.
Commenting on the track, Kane says:
“I was eight years old when I first saw Baggio on TV, it was during the 1994 World Cup. I was taken back by his presence, his look and his talent. It was the first time I’d seen a man look so different and unique. Seeing Baggio led me to be obsessed with that Italian football team for many years later. They made me want to grow my hair and I think that was the start of getting me obsessed with clothes, fashion and all things Italian. It was the start of me wanting to grow into who I am today.”

In a previous press release, Kane elaborated on the album, “Making the album back in Liverpool with my family really helped to bring this out of me. We left no stone unturned, sometimes you have to go backwards to go forwards, and this album helped me rediscover why I picked up a guitar in the first place. This album is like a brand new, yet somehow familiar leather jacket. A comforting melting pot of all the music that has inspired and continues to inspire me every day.”
Following the release of his new album, Miles will be playing a series of shows across the UK.
