Cage the Elephant details “Unpeeled” live album; shares cover of “Whole Wide World”

RCA RecordsCage the Elephant has shared the details of their forthcoming live album Unpeeled, which was recorded during their stripped-down Live & Unpeeled tour earlier this year.

The 21-track collection features 18 tracks from Cage’s four studio albums and three covers, and will be released July 28.

The covers include Daft Punk‘s “Instant Crush,” “Golden Brown” by English punk band The Stranglers, and “Whole Wide World,” originally recorded in 1977 by Wreckless Eric. You can watch a live video of Cage performing “Whole Wide World” at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville now on YouTube.

“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,” says frontman Matt Shultz of Unpeeled.
