Eels will back in the new year with Extreme Witchcraft, which follows pretty quickly on last year's Earth to Dora and will be out January 28 via E Works/[PIAS]. For this one Mark Oliver Everett worked with producer John Parish, who is known for records with PJ Harvey, Aldous Harding and Dry Cleaning's debut album. It's the first time they've worked together since 2001's Souljacker.

“John Parish is one of the most even-tempered, polite people I’ve ever met. 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,” ‘E’ says. “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.”

"Good Night on Earth" is a fuzzed-out, bluesy/punky/dancey number" with E trying to put a positive spin on our shitshow world. "Everyone's a critic, I can't stand heels / So says Colin Firth / Rain on my parade, then the clouds fade / It's a good night on earth."

Listen to "Good Night on Earth," and check out Extreme Witchcraft's tracklist, below.

Eels will be on tour in 2022, with E saying "It’s going to be an extra-special treat this time. We always have the greatest time playing live, but this is gonna get crazy." The tour includes an L.A. stop at the Fonda Theatre on May 9 (tickets) and a NYC show at Webster Hall on May 24 (tickets). All dates are listed below.
