Cage the Elephant just announced Unpeeled, a new 21-track album of stripped-down renditions of some of the rock band’s most beloved songs. Culled from shows in Nashville, Los Angeles, Knoxville, and Washington, D.C., among others, many of the tracks feature a string quartet in addition to instrumentation from the band themselves.

“Many times you’re adding sonic layers looking for something to hide behind, and what you don’t realize is that that vulnerability and that nakedness might be the most compelling and interesting thing about the song,” Matt Shultz said in a statement.

The band also shared a video for “Whole Wide World,” which was shot at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Check out the video, Unpeeled‘s track listing and Cage the Elephant’s tour dates below.
