EELS: "In My Younger Days" - Video

We have to admit, this ditty caught us offguard as being a tad bleak, even for the often morose Mr. E. Ball that up with a video (above) that is a rather bleak take on a trip to the pet store for some dog food, and well, let's just say this: we're kinda expecting that End Times (which drops on 1/19), may not exactly be a disc of rollicking ditties.

Nevertheless, some of E's moments have been his darkest, so this isn't exactly a bad thing. It's been quite a while since he's truly revisited what many to be consider his signature sound, and it may just turn out that End Times is the record a lot of people have been waiting for.
