on February 08, 2018, 11:30am

April 6th marks the release of The Deconstruction, the new album from EELS. Spanning 15 tracks, it follows the act’s The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett from 2014.

The LP’s title track showcased frontman/songwriter E’s (aka Mark Oliver Everett) simmering orchestral side. The second preview, titled “Today is the Day”, flaunts something else entirely. Over sunny, buoyant guitar strums, Everett offers up a positive outlook on the future. “Today is the day it starts right here,” he sings on the poppy cut, vowing to put his worries behind him and turn over a new leaf.
