Billy Idol has announced a new EP as well as shared the official music video for title track ‘The Cage’, directed by Steven Sebring.
The four-track release will drop on 23 September 2022 and follows 2021s ‘The Roadside’ EP and festive LP ‘Happy Holidays’.
‘The Cage’ features the punk rock legend’s long-time collaborator, co-writer and guitarist Steve Stevens. Discussing the forthcoming project in a statement, Idol commented, “The last EP, we were kind of warming up to this. This EP is a lot more coming at you. Loads more guitar. And that’s a lot of fun. We were pretty fired up by the fact that we hadn’t played for a couple of years, and suddenly we were bursting on stage, and it kind of woke us up to what the next EP could be: That it could be a little more strum und drang, a little more coming at you, a little more rock’n’roll, a little more f*ck you! Well, a tiny bit of f*ck you, anyhow. The bottom line is we had a lot of fun doing it.”
