Miles Kane was pleased when Noel Gallagher agreed to provide the ''icing'' of extra vocal harmonies on his forthcoming solo album

Noel Gallagher provided the "icing" for Miles Kane's solo album.

The 24-year-old singer contacted the ex-Oasis guitarist to provide extra vocals on a track for his forthcoming LP 'The Colour Of The Trap' and was delighted when his pal agreed to help.

Miles said: "I texted Noel saying, 'Do you fancy doing these high harmonies? Icing is all it needs.' He replied straight away saying, 'Icing is what I do very well.' "

Miles was previously performed with The Rascals and The Last Shadow Puppets and admits going it alone was daunting at first.

He said: "When you've been in a band with your best friends like I was, you had your posse around you. But doing this at first was a bit daunting - that whole thing of doing it all, calling the shots."

The rocker's Last Shadow Puppets bandmate Alex Turner - who also fronts Arctic Monkeys - likes his pal's new album, but the pair are competitive in their work.

Miles told GQ magazine: "We are best friends. But I also think there's a bit of competition. If he writes a great tune, then I want to write a great tune. It's healthy for both of us."
