Ahead of the release of their new album, ‘Social Cues’, Cage The Elephant have revealed their latest single, ‘Goodbye’. It’s the fourth track from the album, which comes out on Friday 19 April.
Cage The Elephant will be playing a short run of UK headline dates in June, as well as an appearance at the Isle Of Wight Festival. All dates are sold out. They’re also co-headlining in the US with Beck.
‘Goodbye’, which is the final track on the album, is a sombre and dark, piano-led anthem, calling to mind the likes of Tom Odell, Ben Folds, and Beck. ‘Social Cues’ is a concept album covering the breakdown of a relationship, and ‘Goodbye’ is the sad end. Lyrics such as “My heart’s an ashtray/I’ve lost my mind” convey deeply the desperate despair of the song’s author.
