The Eels Will Release a Double Live Album + Documentary This Spring
The Eels will follow up their 2014 album, ‘The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett,’ with a double live album and film, which will document their concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London this past June.
According to a press release (via NME), the film will show Eels frontman Mark Oliver Everett “kissing the spot where John Lennon once stood on the stage” and “making his way to hug fans all the way around Albert Hall’s massive floor.” Check out the documentary’s trailer above, which includes footage of Everett confessing his one-time wish to perform on Royal Albert Hall’s organ before performing ‘When You Wish Upon a Star.’ After the song, the singer materializes at the venue’s massive organ, realizing his dream of playing the famous instrument.
The Eels’ upcoming live album – which will boast 28 tracks -- and film will be released as a double-CD as well as a triple vinyl album, both of which will come with the DVD. It’s slated for an April 13 release.
