Kentucky's Cage The Elephant have just released "Baby Blue," a cut that didn't make it onto their most recent album, Melophobia. The song might have languished as an unreleased b-side forever, but fortunately, it's now being released as a 7" single.
The song is a straight-up power pop rocker, with doubled vocals and a vintage groove. It's a fun, poppy jam that sees a slight stylistic departure from Melophobia, but perhaps that's why it didn't make it on the record. Guitarist Brad Shultz had this to say:
“This was one of the first tracks we worked on for the record – and was originally inspired by Lou Reed…you can’t hear much of that now, but I still like it and I’m pleased it’s getting released.”
