‘Social Cues’ was produced by John Hill (Santigold, Florence + The Machine, Portugal. The Man, tUnE-yArDs), and recorded at Battle Tapes Recording, Blackbird Studio, and Sound Emporium in Nashville, and The Village Recording Studio in Los Angeles. It was 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. 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!

Cage The Elephant is vocalist Matt Shultz, rhythm guitarist Brad Shultz, drummer Jared Champion, bassist Daniel Tichenor, lead guitarist Nick Bockrath and keyboardist Matthan Minster. You can find out more about Cage The Elephant online on their official website, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
