Ric Ocasek and the Cars Reunite, Work on New Album

The band has posted a new song, ‘Blue Tip,’ online, with footage from recent studio sessions

The rumors floating around since July have finally been confirmed: After a 23-year break, the Cars have reunited with original frontman/songwriter Ric Ocasek and are working on their first album together since 1987’s Door to Door. On on their Facebook page the band recently posted a 73-second clip of themselves in the studio working on a new track called “Blue Tip,” and Billboard reports that the Cars are recording a new album and may be planning tour dates.

Random Notes: Lady Gaga, Elton John, Kanye West

In July the Cars hinted at a possible reunion with Ocasek, who previously said he’d never take part in one, when they posted a photo of the four surviving bandmembers together in a Boston studio. In 2005, keyboardist Greg Hawkes and guitarist Elliot Easton launched the New Cars with Todd Rundgren at the microphone, but that project ended in 2007. Any hopes for a full Cars reunion ended in 2000 when bassist-singer Benjamin Orr passed away from pancreatic cancer. The Cars’ official website is currently “under construction,” so more information is likely to come.
