Eels will surprise us in 2020 with a new studio record: "Earth To Dora" is the name of the 13th album by singer-songwriter Mark Oliver Everett and his cohorts Koool G Murder (Kelly Logsdon), The Chet (Jeff Lyster) and P-Boo (Mike Sawitzke).
It is released only two years after "The Deconstruction", which reached number four in the German charts.
Eels recorded the twelve new songs in their own studio in Los Feliz, California
With the tracks "Are We Alright Again", "Baby Let's Make It Real" and "Who You Say You Are" there were already three listening impressions in advance.
Everett calls "Earth To Dora" a "quarantine daydream," an album about things we dream about and want to return to. That's exactly what we need in these times.
»... charmingly private, mid-life songwriter pop that brings Travis back into the ring." (stereoplay, December 2020)
