Cage The Elephant's fourth studio release, Tell Me I'm Pretty, has snagged the "Best Rock Album" Grammy Award at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony. The win marks the group's first Grammy Award and second nomination, following up their nod for 2013's Melophobia in the "Best Alternative Album" category at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.
Tell Me I'm Pretty was produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, and debuted in December 2015 via RCA. The album's singles, "Mess Around" and "Trouble," were both chart toppers on the Billboard Alternative charts, rounding out Cage The Elephant at 7 #1 Alternative tracks, a record for any artist of this decade so far. The latest single from Tell Me I'm Pretty, "Cold Cold Cold," is out now, alongside the artistically chic video directed by frontman Matt Shultz.
Cage The Elephant recently performed a cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' classic song "Mary Jane's Last Dance" at the 27th MusiCares Person of the Year gala, which was in honor of Tom Petty himself. The band, which consists of singer Matt Shultz, guitarist Brad Shultz, bassist Daniel Tichenor, and drummer Jared Champion, will spend most of the summer hitting the festival circuit across both South America and the United States.
