Eels will follow-up this year`s `Hombre Lobo` with next year`s `End Times` in January.‘End Times’ will take E from Eels back to reality after the fictional character ‘Hombre Lobo’ was based on. E calls the next album “the divorce album”.
‘End Times’ could be a bookend with E’s last break-up album ‘Broken Toy Shop’ from 1993.
‘Hombre Lobo’ came four years after its previous album so E says he does not want to waste any time this time. “I felt guilty about the long gap between the last two albums so I’m making up for lost time,” he says.
In the four year gap he wrote the book “Things My Grandchildren Should Know’ and worked on the documentary ‘Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives’ about himself and his physicist father Hugh Everett III.
Now its “back to my real job: making music full time,” he says.
