EELS has announced its first album in four years, The Deconstruction. Set for an April 6th release via E Works/PIAS, the record follows 2014’s The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett.

Frontman and songwriter E (aka Mark Oliver Everett) produced most of the album himself, while Mickey Petralia also chipped in behind the boards for the first time since EEL’s 1998 LP Electro-Shock Blues. Joining them in studio were longtime band members bassist Koool G Murder and guitarist P-Boo, as well as The Deconstruction Orchestra and Choir.

Those latter musicians play a large part on the effort’s title track, which has been shared today as the lead single. “The Deconstruction” is a smoldering bed of ambers, kept warm by orchestral strings and twinkling bells. Take a listen below.

Pre-orders for The Deconstruction are available here. Find the cover art and tracklist below.
