Cage The Elephant To Release New Album In April

Rock band Cage The Elephant has announced their upcoming album, Social Cues, will release April 19 via RCA Records.

The album, the band’s first since 2015’s Tell Me I’m Pretty, is produced by John Hill. The project was recorded in several studios, among them Nashville’s Sound Emporium, Battle Tapes Recording, and Blackbird Studio.

The band also released the album’s first single, “Ready To Let Go,” with the video directed by Cage The Elephant lead singer Matt Shultz.

“When I’m creating, I try to put myself in a reactive state of improvisational thought,” Schultz says. “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.”
