Eels to release new album The Deconstruction this April
Four years on from their last record The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett, Eels are back with a brand new release, The Deconstruction, due for release in April.
It’s significant that it’s been so long between records, as Eels are one of the more prolific projects in the world of indie rock. The Deconstruction will be their 13th record and we dare say fans are well and truly ready for it.
As well as the details of the release, the band have shared a little preview of what to expect through the beautiful title track.
Listen to it here:
Unsurprisingly, the band’s core member E (Mark Oliver Everett) gave a pretty good introduction to the record, taking in the current state of the world and how his new music fits inside or around it.
“Here are 15 new EELS tracks that may or may not inspire, rock, or not rock you,” he said in a statement released today.
“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.”
The Deconstruction is out on Friday 6 April.
The band were due to be in Australia for the Harvest Festival in 2013, before it was canned. And while they had every intention of making up those dates with their own tour, it is yet to eventuate. Here’s hoping this new record brings them back to Australia for the first time in eight years.
