'Souljacker pt.1' Single
|The eels will be releasing their fourth album Souljacker
this autumn. Featuring John Parish, known from his guitar playing on PJ
Harvery records , Kool G. Murder, R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck
and eels drummer Butch.
The first reviews of the advance promo copy and the MP3's that have been floating around the internet seem to indicate that the album has a bit of a return to the electronic beats and breaks of Beautiful Freak, while still having strings like on Daisies of the Galaxy.
|singles||About the content of the new album, eels frontman E. said the following:|
|The first single from the album will be Souljacker Pt.1.
The confirmed b-side will be I Write the B-sides.
'Fresh Feeling' has been confirmed to be the second single to be released. If the singles have enough succes it's also likely that Dreamworks will release 'Woman Driving, Man Sleeping' as a third single.
|"A Souljacker is a serial killer, claimed to not
only kill, but also steal the souls of his victims.I began to think about this idea of
stealing a soul on a larger scale. It seemed to me that there were just too many
distractions and that people were losing their souls because they had no way of knowing
what they had in the first place. How can you keep what you don't know you have? I then
realized that no one can take your soul if you know what you have and you don't want them
I wrote the song that became 'Souljacker Part II' in my head during these 10 days. Later we wrote 'Souljacker Part I', which is about the ugliness of a soulless life. And then came all the other characters in this world that make up [the album] 'Souljacker'." (quote from NME)
