"Miracle Aligner" is the fourth single by English band The Last Shadow Puppets from their second studio album, Everything You've Come to Expect.[1] It was released on 28 March 2016 on Domino Records.[2]

Background and release[edit]

The song was premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio show, where Zane named it his "World Record" for March 28, 2016.[3] The duo jokingly claimed the song was inspired by a "yoga teacher" and a "make-believe wrestler."[4] Turner then said the idea for the song "had always been around" and "came back in the end." He continued by saying that the song was mostly written by himself and his friend and musician Alexandra Savior and "ended up being under the Shadow Puppets umbrella."[5]

Savior has said the song is "obviously about a coke dealer - it's a lifestyle that I didn't relate to myself."[6]
