Ric Ocasek Confirms New Cars Album 

Photo Courtesy - Elektra Records(NEW YORK) -- Ric Ocasek has confirmed what many websites have been buzzing about -- the release of a new album from The Cars.  Ocasek said to that the album "actually sounds like a modern version of the Cars."

A clip from "Blue Tip," one of the songs on the CD,  has already been posted on the band's official Facebook page.  Ocasek also added that he was "amazed at how we clicked when we got back together."

All of the surviving original members -- guitarist Elliot Easton, keyboardist Greg Hawkes and drummer David Robinson -- are playing on this new album.  Bassist Benjamin Orr died in 2000.

The last album to come from The Cars was 1987's Door to Door, just before the band broke up in February of 1988.  Ocasek went on to produce albums for bands including Weezer, No Doubt, Bad Brains and Nada Surf.
