Cake To Release Rarities Album, Live Album + MP3

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
Cake, the band that brought us songs about car racing right next songs about things that bounce on Italian leather sofas without blinking an eye, will release a compilation of rarities and a live album this year, in preparation for a proper studio release in 2008.

First we tackle the rarities thing. It's got hard to find Cake originals alongside covers like Black Sabbath's War Pigs and Barry White's Never, Never Gonna Give You Up. The strange symmetry of those two songs alone might warrant a purchase.

The live album will be titled Live At The Crystal Palace, because it's live, and presumably recorded at the Crystal Palace. I know... it sounds like a stretch but let's trust them on this one. The release date is yet to be set but it will be sometime around the Fall of this year.

Apparently the band has been doing well in rural Minnesota and will spend a quarter of their tour dates there, in live music hot spots like Winona and Concordia. Minnesota... it's the new Brooklyn.
