Cake released Showroom of Compassion on January 11 this year. While some of the songs aren’t your traditional Cake songs (BOO!), they managed to debut at the Number 1 spot on the Billboard charts the first week.
There were several songs that I didn’t like at all. I wasn’t very hopeful about the rest of the album until I heard “Long Time.” This song had all the key components of what a Cake song should consist of: sing+talk, guitar picking, trumpet, synthesizer……….
I. Can’t. Stop. LISTENING. To. It.
The background throughout the entire song + the harmony is awesome.
They are currently in the process of developing the video for the song and hired Callicore Films (based in Paris) to animate the video. Enjoy the song below along with a sneak peek of the upcoming video:
