In "Come a Little Closer," frontman Matt Shultz scales back his usually gritty vocals for a spacey, psychedelic croon. The song originally debuted on Zane Lowe's show on BBC Radio One.

Melophobia is set tentatively for release on October 8th, according to iHeartRadio. Cage the Elephant will also open for Muse on the U.S. leg of their tour in September.
