EELS have announced details of the release of their highly anticipated new album ‘Earth to Dora’, due October 30th via E Works / [PIAS]. In celebration, the band have revealed a new single titled ‘Are We Alright Again’. 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.
