To be fair the slippery bit was just to make a headline, but after a four year wait, EELS have today announced their new album “The Deconstruction”, out April 6th on E Works/[PIAS]. The band have unveiled the title track which you can hear below alongside UK headline shows in July, which includes London’s O2 Brixton Academy. The album is set to be released digitally, on CD, 2 x 10” LP, and on Limited Edition Deluxe 2 x 12” LP Box Set. Lead singer “E” (aka Mark Oliver Everett) (no relation to Kenny) says of the album: “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.”
