The 28-song package comes out in April
Eels are set to release a film and live album from last year’s show at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Recorded on June 30, 2014, it will be released as a double CD and DVD package, as well as triple vinyl LP and DVD, downloads and a longform iTunes video.
The show was filmed by 12 cameras and according to a press release, includes footage of frontman Mark Oliver Everett, aka E, “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” as well as playing the venue’s impressive pipe organ.
The album will be released on April 13. Click above to watch a trailer for the film. The tracklisting is 28 songs long, and includes ‘My Beloved Monster’, ‘Mistakes of My Youth’ and ‘I Like Birds’.
Last year Everett was given the Freedom of the City of London, accepting the honour at a ceremony at London’s Guildhall before Eels perform the band’s show at the Barbican Centre, which took place ahead of the Royal Albert Hall concert. Other musicians to receive the honour include Bob Geldof, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti, but Everett was the first singer of a contemporary band to receive the title.
Eels released their 11th album, ‘The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett’, in 2014.
