EntertainmentCage the Elephant's Reflective Journey: "Out Loud" and the Healing Process

Cage the Elephant’s latest single, “Out Loud,” serves as a poignant reflection on loss and regret for brothers Matthew and Brad Shultz, following the passing of their father. The heartfelt piano ballad delves into themes of grief and introspection, with Matthew’s vocals conveying a sense of vulnerability and introspection. The song’s introspective lyrics, such as “Man, I really messed up now, too afraid to say it out loud,” offer a glimpse into the emotional turmoil experienced by the band in the wake of their loss. As they navigate the complexities of mourning, Cage the Elephant finds solace in the creation of music, channeling their emotions into a powerful and evocative piece.

The production of their upcoming sixth album, “Neon Pill,” serves as a testament to Cage the Elephant’s resilience and growth in the face of adversity.

The album, written in the aftermath of the Shultz brothers’ father’s passing, explores themes of loss, identity, and self-discovery. Matthew Shultz describes “Neon Pill” as the band’s most original work yet, highlighting their newfound sense of authenticity and creative independence. Despite the challenges they’ve faced, Cage the Elephant remains steadfast in their commitment to creating music that resonates with listeners on a profound level.
