Billy Idol has announced The Cage EP, due September 23 via Dark Horse Records (pre-order). It's his second release on Dark Horse, the George Harrison-founded label that has been recently revived by Dhani Harrison and David Zonshine. The Cage EP is a followup to 2021's The Roadside EP, and is likewise a collaboration with longtime co-writer and guitarist Steve Stevens. Other contributors include Tommy English, Joe Janiak, Zakk Cervini, and Butch Walker. Billy says:

The last EP, we were kind of warming up to this. This EP is a lot more coming at you. Loads more guitar. And that’s a lot of fun. We were pretty fired up by the fact that we hadn’t played for a couple of years, and suddenly we were bursting on stage, and it kind of woke us up to what the next EP could be: That it could be a little more strum und drang, a little more coming at you, a little more rock’n’roll, a little more f*ck you! Well, a tiny bit of f*ck you, anyhow. The bottom line is we had a lot of fun doing it.

With the announcement of The Cage EP, Billy Idol has released the punky, power-poppy titular single "Cage" with a music video directed by Steven Sebring. Watch it, and check out the artwork and track list for The Cage EP, below.

Billy Idol also has a world tour on the way, including two South American dates with Green Day and a UK run with Television and Toyah. All dates are listed below. There's a Jonas Akerlund-directed Billy Idol documentary on the way too.
