The Eels’ twelfth studio album and first in four years, The Deconstruction, was performed by E (Mark Oliver Everett) and his longtime collaborators Koool G Murder and P-Boo alongside The Deconstruction Orchestra & Choir. It was produced by E, with some songs produced by Mickey Petralia for the first time since 1998’s Electro-Shock Blues. Eels mastermind E says of the new album, “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.”

It has been more than two decades since Eels first burst onto the scene with their gloriously offbeat debut album Beautiful Freak. Since then, the band’s chief creative force Mark Oliver Everett – better known simply as E – has delivered a dozen albums, written an autobiography, penned music for films an television shows and even fronted a BAFTA-winning documentary on the subject his father Hugh Everett, the physicist responsible for the ‘many-worlds’ theory which posits the existence of infinite universes.

After recording and touring relentlessly for much of the last couple of decades he decided to take a well-earned break, but this week Eels return with their first new album since 2014 and ahead of its release we sat down with the man himself to talk about the new album, his forays into acting, and hanging out with the cast of Mad Men…
