Wow, MTV is actually doing something cool for a change by promoting the new single of longtime IRT favorite Cage, whose new album, Depart From Me, is due out later this summer on Definitive Jux.

Here's some information regarding the MTV promotion from Cage's publicity team, including the link to cop the free EP:

"I Never Knew You", the brand new video from Definitive Jux artist Cage premiered this Monday, May 18th on MTV2's Unleashed airing hourly all day. The directorial debut for actor Shia LaBeouf, who also appears in the video, "I Never Knew You" narrates the powerful story of Cage's debut single from the forthcoming album Depart From Me.
