The new album from Eels, 'The Cautionary Tales Of Mark Oliver Everett', is an extraordinarily vivid and intimate document of a personal struggle. “It's inspired by something I went though,” Everett (Eels’ lead singer, songwriter, guitarist, keyboardist and sometime drummer) says. “Someone I lost, by choice, and later came to regret losing. It wasn’t until I started to look at my role in it that it began to feel like I was getting somewhere worthwhile. The experience transformed me. This is the musical version of that experience. I’m hoping it could maybe serve as some sort of example for others. To learn from my mistakes.”

Quite different to the previous Eels release, and in contrast to the high-octane rock n' roll of the last EELS tour, THE CAUTIONARY TALES couples a bare-bones lyrical intimacy with a live orchestra of cello, viola, violins, bassoon, English and French horn, clarinet, flute, saxophone, trumpet, musical saw, glockenspiel and celesta that lends a stunning backdrop to the brutal insights of the lyrics.
