Cage The Elephant reveal a taster of their new Unpeeled album with a video for Whole Wide World. The live performance video gives fans an idea of what to expect on the band’s upcoming first ‘unplugged’ show in the UK.
The Grammy Award-winning act will be playing an unusually intimate show in London in July, with a stripped down arrangement, including a string quartet.
Unpeeled will be avaiable from 28 July via RCA Records. The new album was recorded live across various US cities. It features 21 tracks, mostly reworkings of previously recorded songs, plus three cover versions, including Whole Wide World.
Famed for their relentlessly high energy, powerful and interactive live shows, the new bare bones live version of these Kentucky rockers will be fascinating to experience.
“Many times you’re adding sonic layers looking for something to hide behind, and what you don’t realize is that that vulnerability and that nakedness might be the most compelling and interesting thing about the song,” said singer Matt Shultz.
Whole Wide World was originally written and performed by Wreckless Eric.
Cage The Elephant are currently bringing their full electrifying shows to European shores, including festivals and dates in Nottingham and Cardiff.
