E aka Mark Oliver Everett has an almost optimistic “Premonition” that he would like to share with listeners today. “Premonition” is a sparse, acoustic number that often feels at odds with the lyrics that E espouses. I know that’s the point but in the context that I’m working with, I may get this song more so than a casual fan. That’s all speculation, so call it what you will. “Premonition” is the first release from E’s upcoming album, The Deconstruction, which is out April 6th via PIAS.

To celebrate the release of The Deconstruction, EELS will tour worldwide this summer, with a North American headline run kicking off May 28 in Pomona, CA and further shows in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, New York, D.C. and more. See below for full tour details, and purchase tickets HERE.
The album was performed by E and longtime collaborators Koool G Murder and P-Boo, alongside The Deconstruction Orchestra and Choir, and produced by E, with some songs produced with Mickey Petralia for the first time since 1998’s Electro-Shock Blues.

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 eleven 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. EELS released their critically acclaimed The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett in 2014, and 2015 saw the release of the band’s extraordinary seventh live album Live at Royal Albert Hall, recorded at the storied London venue and accompanied by a concert film. In the same year, the band’s “Fresh Blood” served as the theme song to HBO’s “The Jinx” and in 2016, 2017 and 2018 E appeared in Judd Apatow’s Netflix original series “Love.”
