Billy Idol is back with The Cage EP which is set for release on September 23 via Dark Horse Records / BMG. The new music follows the release of Idol’s 2021 The Roadside EP, which included the hit “Bitter Taste” and received praise from fans and critics alike. As on The Roadside EP, Idol is joined on the new project by his longtime collaborator, co-writer and guitarist Steve Stevens.
In celebration of the upcoming release, Idol debuts the EP’s punk rock infused lead single “Cage”.
“Coming out of the lockdown era, people had a lot of energy stored up,” recalls co-producer Tommy English who also co-wrote three of the album’s tracks with Idol, Stevens and Joe Janiak. “That was the inspiration for ‘Cage.’ Getting out there and doing the things we’ve been missing. And that includes not being afraid to do a raucous punk rock song like ‘Cage.’ And we didn’t worry about whether it fit in anywhere because it just sounds so Billy.” Pre-order The Cage here.
