This morning, GRAMMY Award winners Cage The Elephant debuts the live performance video for their song “Sweetie Little Jean,” featured on their forthcoming album Unpeeled. The song was recorded live by the band at their sold-out, hometown show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and you can watch the video here.
Cage The Elephant will release Unpeeled worldwide on July 28th via RCA Records. The new album was recorded over a series of intimate shows in cities including Los Angeles, Washington DC, Knoxville, and Nashville where the band performed in a stripped-down arrangement with a string quartet and additional percussion. Unpeeled features twenty-one tracks: eighteen curated songs from their past four albums plus three reimagined versions of existing songs. Said front man Matt Shultz about the inspiration behind the album: “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.”
