They were one of the greatest bands to emerge from New Wave in the late 1970s and they’ve lamentably been absent for too long. Their first album, self-titled, was and is a must-own. Now The Cars are not only back, but the band has confirmed a release date and title for a new album.
‘Move Like This’ will be out May 10.
It’ll be the band’s first album in 24 years, one that will feature original Cars members Ric Ocasek, guitarist Elliot Easton, keyboardist Greg Hawkes and drummer David Robinson (bassist Benjamin Orr died of pancreatic cancer in 2000).
No word yet on any possible tour plans.
The album’s first single, “Sad Song,” will hit radio in mid-March; the band posted a short teaser clip of it last month, proving their songwriting chops and recording hooks are still in top form. We’ve also uncovered two more teasers from recent days to go along with it.
Take our money and give us the new record. Real soon, please.
