Eels release ‘Amateur Hour’

The track comes ahead of the release of new album ‘Extreme Witchcraft’.

Ahead of the release of their fourteenth studio album ‘Extreme Witchcraft’ on 28th January, Eels are sharing new single, and album opener, ‘Amateur Hour’. Working with PJ Harvey producer and guitarist John Parish on the record, E says, “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. 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.” Have a listen to ‘Amateur Hour’ below. ‘Extreme Witchcraft’ Tracklisting: 1.
