Never ones to pre-judge, Eels are set to sidestep expectations once again.
Following the rock themed 'Wonderful, Glorious', new album 'The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett' is a pastoral, meditative return.
Out on April 21st, the album is to be trailed by new cut 'Mistakes Of My Youth'. A bare, open, emotionally frank song, it finds E ruminating on past endeavours and misgivings.
Musically soothing, the lush nature of the arrangement is matched against often painfully honest lyrics.
Listen to it now.
