Well, here's a great way to keep the Friday going: new music from Cake!
The band hasn't released a new original song in 7 years, but they must have been inspired by this past summer's massive tour with Ben Folds. The new track is called "Sinking Ship," and is undoubtedly Cake!
Of the track, frontman John McCrea says:
“We are happy to be releasing new music; this time in the form of a series of singles. ‘Sinking Ship’ is quite pessimistic but somehow does not seem hyperbolic right now. All proceeds from the sale of this song will be donated to Doctors Without Borders. CAKE is proud to be able to help out in securing real leadership for the United States. It is a critical time for the world, and it is more important than ever to find leaders capable of putting country above self-interest. Real greatness comes from community, cooperation and ethical leadership.”
While there's not a mention of a full album (and just singles) yet, I'd say an album should be headed our way sometime next year.
