Cage The Elephant have shared “Mess Around,” the first single from their upcoming album Tell Me I’m Pretty.
The video for the track was directed by Georges Melies and features footage from the Lobster Films collection.
The album was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, and recorded at his Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville.
“With this record, we wanted to be more transparent,” said singer Matt Shultz in a prepared statement. “We wanted to capture the sentiment of each song, and whatever emotional response it provoked, to be really honest to that.”
