Cage The Elephant share new single 'Good Time'

With their highly-anticipated new album landing next month, Cage The Elephant have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Good Time' follows on from the previously shared 'Out Loud' and the record's title-track in previewing their new LP 'Neon Pill', which is out on the 17th May via Columbia Records.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Matthew Shultz said, “‘Good Time’ was one of those rare tracks that captivated me almost instantaneously. The instrumentation hit so hard, with an energy that was so commanding, that it was almost as if I couldn’t have kept myself from writing something to it if I had wanted to. Very different from anything we had ever written before, and somehow it still felt relatively familiar in contrast to our prior works. It felt like visually the music was some strange monstrous alien creature thunderously marching and stumbling down a crowded street in the middle of a parade on a sweltering hot summer day or something weird like that. I wanted the vocals to dance around and play with that energy. To be potent and at the same time intuitive or a seemingly random mumbling. As though they were a frantically ranted broken confessional piece. To illustrate as best as possible, psychosis and the entanglement of the inner dialog that constantly circulates when in that state. At the same time, in a playful way, sarcastically proclaiming that it was all just a good time or perhaps more so allowing the sarcastic statement to remain open as more of a question itself. A party song which beneath the surface, anthemic as it may be, might not be a party song at all.”
