E.B. The Younger announces debut album “To Each His Own”

And the best news of the afternoon is the arrival of this little beauty from Eric Pulido of Midlake whose debut solo work goes under the name E.B. The Younger.

Check out the video asap, featuring an old pal of ours!

So thrilled to continue the Midlake connections in 2018 with E.B. The Younger, who will release his glorious debut album To Each His Own in March 2019. Watch the video for “Used To Be” now starring actor Jason Lee as Coach Dick!

“What came before you is why you’re here now,” declares the man born Eric Brandon Pulido. “So embrace both the past and the present.” The frontman of Texan legends Midlake embraces both past and present times for his glorious debut solo album To Each His Own, under his new enigmatic alias E.B. The Younger, released 8th March via Bella Union . E.B The Younger has shared an amusing and nostalgic video for lead track “Used to Be” starring Jason Lee which can be viewed below.

Of the track and video Pulido says: “The tune ‘Used To Be’ is an acquiescence towards an imminent coming-of-age and the subsequent peace found in it’s acceptance. In short, this is 40 and I’m OK with it. It’s human nature to get stuck looking backwards and lamenting the passing of a romanticized time or place. Since we tend to appreciate things more now than when we do in the moment, my battle cry of sorts here is to champion the ‘now’ and carry on with a renewed spirit. And what better way for this mantra to manifest itself than for a bunch of guys playing dress up, cracking open some beers and partaking in America’s favorite pastime!? The teams in the video were mainly made up of the guys who played on the record, and although it was a near miracle to get us all there together, it really made the experience that much more special and memorable to say the least. The cherry on top was pulling my longtime friend Jason Lee from his current acting hiatus to play the coach. He hasn’t missed a beat and had us all rolling in laughter and feeling like kids again. I’m so thankful we pulled this off and I hope it brings as much of a smile to everyone’s face that watches as creating it did mine.”
