Miles Kane's next solo album will feature 10 ''upbeat'' tracks.

The 'Inhaler' hitmaker is excited about starting work on the follow-up to last year's 'The Colour of the Trap' and already has a very clear idea in mind of what the record will be like and is thinking of how the songs will feature into his live shows.

He said: ''I know exactly what I want from it. I want 10 songs, all of them banging.

''The blueprint is for it to be upbeat. I want every song to be grooving, a proper banger in the vein of [previous singles] 'Come Closer' or 'Inhaler', so that live we'll just be f***ing having it.''

Miles has also set his sights on a collaboration with Janelle Monae, though he admits he hasn't approached the singer yet.

He added to NME magazine: ''I'd love to do a duet with that bird Janelle Monae, I'd love to make a great two-and-a-half minute pop song with her.

''I haven't put The Feelers out, but I could see us working well together.''
