Cage The Elephant Debut New Song ‘Rainbow’ On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Last night (May 8), Cage the Elephant stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform the world debut of their song Rainbow from their upcoming album Neon Pill.

The band premiered the track as part of Jimmy Kimmel’s Concert Series. The mellow lo-fi track follows previous singles “Metaverse,” “Neon Pill, “Good Time,” and “Out Loud.” Watch the performance below.

Speaking about the new album frontman Matt Shultz says“ To me, Neon Pill is the first record where we were consistently uninfluenced, and I mean that in a positive way. Everything is undoubtedly expressed through having settled into finding our own voice. We’ve always drawn inspiration from artists we love, and at times we’ve even emulated some of them to a certain degree.

“With this album, having gone through so much, life had almost forced us into becoming more and more comfortable with ourselves. We weren’t reaching for much outside of the pure experience of self expression, and simultaneously not necessarily settling either. We just found a uniqueness in simply existing.”

Neon Pill drops May 17th. Pre-order it here.

Cage the Elephant have mapped out a North American tour for the summer. See their dates here.
