let them hear cake

tom tomorrow has an update on one of our fav bands, cake:

some news from my friend john mccrea:

...inspired by the passionate individuals who have continued to support and appreciate them over the years, the band is thrilled to give something back to their listeners with this exclusive compilation. cake’s john mccrea elaborates “we were all quite surprised how cohesively these songs fit together into one album, they seemed to just belong together.” mccrea continues “aesthetically, many of the songs hadn’t quite worked on previous albums and for years they lacked proper homes. now they all have a home. it is good to have a home”. cake’s vince difiore adds, “these songs were recorded at times when we wanted to extend our idea of what the band could do stylistically. it was good to see that the recordings worked as a collection, and i’m glad we can offer it to listeners.” songs on the album were originally sung by legendary singers such as frank sinatra, barry white, buck owens, george jones, ozzy osborne, and kenny rogers. the band has used these songs to find new creative elements within themselves, producing eloquently accomplished tracks that simultaneously maintain the band’s own unique stamp.
