EELS have announced details of the release of their highly anticipated new album ‘Earth to Dora’, due October 30th. The album is set to be released digitally, and as a standard 12” LP and deluxe double 12” LP box set.
Recorded at the EELS’ Los Feliz, California studio, ‘Earth to Dora’ was produced by band leader Mark Oliver Everett a.k.a. E, and performed by E, Koool G Murder, The Chet and P- Boo.
Speaking about the new record, E says: “These songs came about just before the pandemic hit and changed everything. I’m hoping they can be, maybe kind of soothing or something. To hear songs dealing with things we are dreaming about getting back to. Or maybe people are dealing with some of the topics right now as well. Just one song was done in the thick of the early pandemic days, ‘Are We Alright Again’, which is kind of a quarantine daydream I
desperately needed to have.”
Set to include the surprise single releases ‘Baby Let’s Make It Real’ and ‘Who You Say You Are’, ‘Earth to Dora’ marks the 13th full length EELS album, and first since 2018’s ‘The Deconstruction’, their first in four years, the album was released to widespread acclaim and described as “another EELS album to treasure” by MOJO, “overwhelming” by Uncut, and “a career-straddling greatest hits collection, in which all the ‘hits’ are brand new,” by CLASH.
EELS have had one of the most consistently acclaimed careers in music. The ever-changing
project of principal singer/songwriter E (Mark Oliver Everett), EELS have released 12 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.
2015 saw the release of the band’s extraordinary Royal Albert Hall live album and concert
film. In the same year, the band’s “Fresh Blood” served as the theme song to HBO’s “The
Jinx” and from 2016 to 2018 E appeared in Judd Apatow’s Netflix original series “Love.”
EELS released their 12th studio album, and first in four years, ‘The Deconstruction’ in April
2018 and toured America and Europe in 2018 and 2019.
