Avant-garde provocateur and former member of the Velvet Underground, the great John Cale, has announced the release of a new five-track EP.
TheLineOfBestFit reports that the 69-year-old Welshman will put out the new EP on September 19 through Double Six Records with the title of Extra Playful.
Cage’s last album proper was 2005′s Black Acetate, a bleak record that was nevertheless a heartening return to form. Cale also released a three-CD live album in 2007, Circus Live.
A track from the new EP, Whaddya Mean By That, can be heard below.
The tracklisting for Extra Playful is:
