Eels Return With Extreme Witchcraft, Listen to ‘Good Night on Earth’

E Eels

Eels announced their newest album Extreme Witchcraft, set to arrive on January 28, 2022. It will be their 14th overall.

Frontman Mark Oliver Everett, a.k.a. E, co-produced the record with PJ Harvey producer John Parish, which is the second time the two are collaborating since the 2001 Souljacker. A song off the record “Good Night On Earth” is out now on streaming services.

Listen to “Good Night on Earth” below:

“John Parish is one of the most even-tempered, polite people I’ve ever met,” Everett said. “A true gentleman. Actually he’s probably THE most polite person I’ve ever met. But when he gets into the studio he becomes a mad scientist. If you make music with John Parish, you get stuff no one else does. He has a really unique toolbox and musical outlook. Perhaps his politeness is a coping mechanism to keep Mr. Hyde under control when he’s out of his laboratory.”

Eels will embark in the spring of 2022 on their Lockdown Hurricane tour in Europe and America, opening in Belfast. Fans can purchase tickets on the band’s website.
