There were eight years between the debut from The Last Shadow Puppets, The Age of the Understand, and this past April’s Everything You’ve Come to Expect. But fans will have barely waited eight months before the British group drops their next effort, as they’ve today announced a December 2nd release for The Dream Synopsis EP.

Coming via Domino, the five-track effort features new versions of the title track and “Aviation”, both tunes from their sophomore LP. The rest of the songs are studio versions of covers the band has been performing on their 2016 tour. Included are takes on “Le Cactus” by Jacques Dutronc, “Totally Wired” by The Fall, and “This Is Your Life” by Glaxo Babies. As a first listen, TLSP have shared the video for their cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Is This What You Wanted”, which you can watch above.

For comparison’s sake, find Cohen’s original beneath the The Dream Synopsis tracklist below.
