The Cars have confirmed what everyone was expecting – the four surviving members of the new wave hitmakers will release a reunion album this Spring. Move Like This will be released on May 10.
Ric Ocasek, Elliot Easton, David Robinson and Greg Hawkes regrouped last summer before posting a photo of themselves working in the studio on Facebook. They’ve since released clips of some of their new songs. The only missing original member is bassist/vocalist Benjamin Orr, who died from cancer in 2000. Hawkes has taken over bass duties.
Move Like This will be The Cars’ first album of new material since 1987’s Door to Door. The album’s first single is called “Sad Song,” and will be released in mid-March.
