EELS have announced the The Deconstruction, their highly-anticipated first album in four years, is due for release April 6th on E Works/[PIAS] and the first offering, title track ‘The Deconstruction’ is a beautiful introduction.

EELS singer-songwriter E (Mark Oliver Everett) says of the new album; “Here are 15 new EELS tracks that may or may not inspire, rock, or not rock you. The world is going nuts. But if you look for it, there is still great beauty to be found. Sometimes you don’t even have to look for it. Other times you have to try to make it yourself. And then there are times you have to tear something apart to find something beautiful inside.”

Take a listen to ‘The Deconstruction’ below.
