Tell Me I’m Pretty was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and The Arcs. According to singer Matt Shultz,“Working with Dan was the perfect balance to our approach. The end result was…a great experience that really brought on a lot of growth.” The album was mixed by Tom Elmhirst and recorded at Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, Tennessee, near the band’s home town of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Rolling Stone said, “Tell Me I’m Pretty reflects everything from psychedelic bubblegum pop to, not coincidentally, the spare tautness of the Black Keys.” Cage the Elephant’s Grammy-nominated 2013 album Melophobia took the band to new heights, spinning off two Number One singles on the Alternative charts, “Come a Little Closer” and “Cigarette Daydreams.”Rolling Stone described the album as, “Kentucky’s Cage the Elephant warp Sixties garage rock, Seventies punk and Eighties alt-rock into excellently weird new shapes.” Cage the Elephant has toured extensively, selling out several headlining runs and performing alongside the likes of The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Muse and Queens of the Stone Age.
