Wonderful, Glorious, the 10th studio album by Eels is currently available to stream in full on the Vagrant Records Soundcloud page ahead of a February 4th release by the label and Eels' own label E Works.
Another step forward in the enigmatic and creative career of long-term musician, multi-instrumentalist and song writer Mark Oliver Everett (aka E), the record was written with the musicians he put together for his last two tours; guitarists The Chet and P-Boo, bass player Koool G Murder and drummer Knuckles. Recorded in his new Los Feliz, Californian studio affectionately re-named 'The Compound', E said of the record, "The only rule I had was ‘let’s try it.’”
Eels have also released the new video for New Alphabet, a sequel to the previously released Peach Blossom. The videos arrived with the following statement from Mr. E:
"Adult male abuse is a widespread but little acknowledged problem in today's society. Many grown men are victims of children's senseless bullying. I have made the brave choice to speak up as a victim of these pint-sized terrorists. I am so tired of children picking on me. It is my hope that this video will serve as the first step in opening a dialogue between victims and community leaders that will one day lead to the end of this awful abuse."
