Eels are back in January with End Times, the follow-up to 2009's Hombre Lobo. Yesterday, E posted the lead single, "Little Wing," to the band's Web site. For all the bands who sing about being depressed and how cold the world can be, Eels are the saddest sounding band that everybody should be listening to.
From the sound of "Little Wing," a song of missing love that finds E singing to a bird about his broken heart, this one could be a real downer. Hope there's a "Prize-Fighter" or "Dog-Faced Boy" or something on the album to break up the tears.
The 14-track End Times is out January 19, 2010. Download "Little Wing" at the link below in exchange for an email address. As always, it's worth it.
