'Ready To Let Go' Earns Cage The Elephant Their Best Alternative Songs Debut


"Ready To Let Go," the lead single from Cage the Elephant's upcoming album Social Cues, made the band's best Billboard Alternative Songs airplay chart debut.

"Ready to Let Go" is ranked at No. 20 on the Alternative Songs chart dated February 9. The band's previous best ranking for a debut was the No. 22 start for "Shake Me Down" in 2011.

Social Cues, scheduled to release on April 19, is a follow-up to the rock band's Grammy-winning album Tell Me I'm Pretty.

Cage The Elephant frontman Matt Shultz said filmmaker Darren Aronofsky's influence is evident on the new album.

"I've always been drawn to stuff like that. I think watching films by [German director R.W.] Fassbinder, where not everything is symbolic but certainly is surreal or strange, is where the direction started to form - the culmination of those filmmakers," he told NME.
