Eels (the project of Mark Oliver Everett) are releasing a new album, The Deconstruction, on April 6 via E Works/PIAS. Previously Everett shared its title track, "The Deconstruction," as well as the upbeat "Today Is the Day." Now "Today Is the Day" has a video. Gus Black directed the sweet video, which stars Mike Mitchell, who plays Randy on the Netflix comedy Love (which makes sense since Everett is also sometimes on that show). Mitchell sings and dances to the song on a suburban street while clutching a bouquet of flowers. Everett cameos as someone less happy. Watch it below, followed by Eels' upcoming tour dates.

Everett had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "Here are 15 new Eels tracks that may or may not inspire, rock, or not rock you. The world is going nuts. But if you look for it, there is still great beauty to be found. Sometimes you don't even have to look for it. Other times you have to try to make it yourself. And then there are times you have to tear something apart to find something beautiful inside."
