Los Angeles indie rock outfit Eels have announced details of the release of their highly anticipated new album Earth To Dora. “These songs came about just before the pandemic hit and changed everything,” said Mark Oliver Everett, also known as E. “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.” The album was recorded at the band’s studio in Los Feliz, Los Angeles.
Note: the deluxe limited edition 2-LP box set comes pressed on translucent red vinyl with zoetrope labels, and contains a litho print, CD Digipak, A5 sticker sheet, fridge magnets and 12″x12″ zoetrope slip-mat.
