Cage The Elephant have released a video for their track Trouble.

The song is taken from the Kentucky rock outfit’s fourth album Tell Me I’m Pretty, released last year. The promo for Trouble is directed by frontman Matt Schultz – his first time directing a video.

Schultz says: “I really wanted to make a video that was like John Wayne or a young Clint Eastwood acting in a Cocteau play or Ingmar Bergman’s Wild Strawberries.

“A metaphorical journey that hopefully people could read between the lines.”

Cage The Elephant have a string of tour dates lined up for 2016.
