Cage The Elephant, meanwhile, released their Beck collaboration ‘Night Running’ yesterday (March 28). The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album ‘Social Cues’.

Frontman Matt Shultz spoke to NME about ‘Night Running’ last month, explaining: “We’d found a really great direction for the chorus but it was one of those songs where I was just stumped on the directions for the verses. We were talking about how to finish the song and Brad [Shultz, guitarist] was like, ‘For some reason, I feel like Beck would know.’”

Garbage have added this new festival performance to an already stacked summer 2019 touring schedule, which will continue on these shores in Cambridge after their slot at the Isle of Wight Festival.
