After announcing a co-headline tour of the same name, Beck and Cage the Elephant have shared a new collaborative single called “Night Running.” The tune has a dancehall reggae feel with a frantic, biting guitar riff and some rapid-fire lyrics from lead singer Matt Shultz with Beck joining in on the chorus. Listen to the new song in the video above.
“Night Running” will land on Cage the Elephant’s upcoming LP, Social Cues, which arrives on April 19. Along with “Night Running,” the Kentucky rock outfit has also shared two additional singles from Social Cues, “House of Glass” and “Ready to Let Go,” with the latter receiving the visual treatment. Watch it here. Social Cues is Cage the Elephant’s first new album in four years following their Grammy-winning 2015 LP Tell Me I’m Pretty.
While no new album announcement has come from the Beck camp as of yet, the musical chameleon is still riding high from his Best Alternative Music Album Grammy win for his 2017 album Colors. The record also took home a Grammy for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. Beck hasn’t been resting on his laurels though. He recently released a pair of songs that appeared on movie soundtracks: “Tarantula,” from the Oscar-winning film Roma, and “Super Cool” featuring Robyn and The Lonely Island from The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
Beck and Cage the Elephant head out on The Night Running tour this summer which will include a stop at Denver’s Fiddler’s Green with special guests Spoon and Starcrawler. Purchase your (Tickets) here.
