Eels (the project of Mark Oliver Everett) released a new album, The Deconstruction, about a year ago (in April 2018) via E Works/PIAS. Now he has shared a video for the album’s “You Are the Shining Light.” It’s an animated video that features a miner who discovers a large glowing object. David Horsburgh directed the video, which was illustrated by Teresa Gasco and animated by Ivan Xavier, Thanos Kousis, and Alexandre Belbari. Watch it below, followed by Eels’ upcoming tour dates.

Read our 2018 interview with Eels on The Deconstruction.

Previously Everett shared the album’s title track, “The Deconstruction,” as well as the upbeat “Today Is the Day.” Then there was a video for “Today Is the Day” that starred Mike Mitchell, who played Randy on the Netflix comedy Love (Everett was also sometimes on that show), as well as two other songs, “Premonition” and “Bone Dry” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then he shared a video for “Bone Dry.”

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.”
