The collaboration that we never even knew we needed is here and it takes the form of the latest single from Beck and Cage the Elephant, "Night Running". The reggae-inspired, upbeat rock track will be featured on Cage the Elephant's forthcoming album, Social Cues, set to drop on April 19th.
"Night Running" is three-and-a-half minutes of pure fun. Taking cues from Beck's latest synth-pop work, we are swayed to a melodious and catchy chorus that seamlessly incorporates vocals and elements from Cage the Elephant, making it hard to separate the two musical powerhouses. It's a perfect amalgamation of what these two are all about: funk, rock, clever songwriting, unapologetic vocals, and pure entertainment.
You can expect to find the same entertainment value on Beck and Cage the Elephant's upcoming co-headlining North American tour, titled after "Night Running." With Beck coming off an award-winning year, with his 2017 LP Colors recently winning a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album, and Cage the Elephant gearing up to support their fifth studio album, it's the perfect time to celebrate these two acts. The "Night Running" tour will be supported by special guest Spoon, as well as opening acts Starcrawler, Wild Belle, and Sunflower Bean at select dates.
