Cage The Elephant have announced their fifth album, ‘Social Cues’.
It’ll arrive on 19th April via Columbia Records, preceded by new single ‘Ready To Let Go’, which you can check out below.
“It can be a vehicle to act out things that are hard to confront,” says frontman Matt Shultz of making new music. “When I'm creating, I try to put myself in a reactive state of improvisational thought. I let images just arise in my mind and wait for it to evoke an emotional response and then when it does, I know I'm on to something. I was watching a lot of Fassbinder films, like World on a Wire and The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant. I was thinking about their beauty coupled with the graphic surrealism of Aronofsky.”
Produced by John Hill, the album was recorded at Battle Tapes Recording, Blackbird Studio and Sound Emporium in Nashville and The Village Recording Studio in Los Angeles, mixed by Tom Elmhirst and mastered by Randy Merrill in New York City.
