Eels have announced a new album and released its first single, which sounds like a return to peak raspy indie-rock for project head E.
Singer-songwriter E (Mark Oliver Everett) says of 12th record The Deconstruction, due for release April 6: “Here are 15 new EELS tracks that may or may not inspire, rock, or not rock you. The world is going nuts. But if you look for it, there is still great beauty to be found. Sometimes you don’t even have to look for it. Other times you have to try to make it yourself. And then there are times you have to tear something apart to find something beautiful inside.”
