Cage The Elephant Say 'Goodbye' In Melancholic New Song: Listen

By Katrina Nattress

April 9, 2019

Cage The Elephant are gearing up to release their fifth studio album Social Cues in less than two weeks, and on Monday (April 8) gave us another glimpse of what to expect from the band's latest chapter.

"Goodbye" is a stark contrast from the upbeat songs we've already heard off the album. Melancholic piano leads the way as Matt Shultz forlornly sings "No more time/ It's too late/ It's too late to say goodbye" in the chorus.

"Goodbye" is the fourth song Cage The Elephant has shared off the upcoming album, following "House of Glass," lead single "Ready to Let Go" and the Beck-assisted "Night Running. Social Cues is slated for an April 19 release. Listen to "Goodbye" below.
