Cage The Elephant today releases a brand new song ‘Night Running’, with Beck. The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming fifth studio album, ‘Social Cues’, out April 19th on Columbia Records.
Cage The Elephant have also recently announced The Night Running Tour in the States, where they will be co-headlining with Beck throughout the summer and will be playing a run of sold-out UK shows this June.
Social Cues was produced by John Hill (Santigold, Florence + The Machine, Portugal. The Man, tUnE-yArDs), recorded at Battle Tapes Recording, Blackbird Studio and Sound Emporium in Nashville and The Village Recording Studio in Los Angeles, and mixed by Tom Elmhirst and mastered by Randy Merrill in New York City.
The majority of the material on Social Cues was written during the unravelling of Shultz’s relationship. He explains, “it can be a vehicle to act out things that are hard to confront.” He went on to say, “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. One listen to ‘Social Cues’ and you’ll agree!
