A great new song from E and his band Eels is here, months in advance of the new album from which it comes, “Extreme Witchcraft”, which will be released on January 28th, 2022. It is their fourteenth studio album.

It’s in A, as were most of Buddy Holly’s songs. It is called “Good Night On Earth.” Eels leader Mark Oliver Everett, aka E, co-produced the record with John Parish, who is  best known for his work as PJ Harvey’s  producer and guitarist. Parish and E first teamed up in 2001 to create Eels’ “Souljacker” Album.

John Parish,” said E, “is one of the most even-tempered, polite people I’ve ever met. A true gentleman. Actually he’s probably the most polite person I’ve ever met. But when he gets into the studio he becomes a mad scientist. If you make music with John Parish, you get stuff no one else does.”

“[Parish] has a really unique toolbox and musical outlook,” said E. “Perhaps his politeness is a coping mechanism to keep Mr. Hyde under control when he’s out of his laboratory.”  

Eels have had one of the most consistently acclaimed careers in music. The ever-changing project of principal singer/songwriter Eels have released 13 studio albums since their 1996 debut, Beautiful Freak.

In 2008, E published his highly acclaimed book “Things the Grandchildren Should Know” and starred in the award-winning Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives documentary about the search to understand his quantum physicist father, Hugh Everett III.  2020’s Earth To Dora album, received extensive critical praise, and was described as “their sweetest natured album ever”.  

EELS are also set for their Lockdown Hurricane Tour of Europe and America in Spring 2022; kicking off on March 11th in Belfast through to Rock City, Nottingham, UK on March 17th
