Content

The album was self-produced by E and focuses on themes of divorce and aging. The cover was designed by Adrian Tomine.

Release

End Times was released on January 19, 2010. The album was also released in a deluxe edition with a bonus EP.

The music video for "Little Bird" was released on YouTube through the official Eels channel in November 2009 and "In My Younger Days" in December 2009. The single for "A Line in the Dirt" backed with "Little Bird" was released through Eels' online store on January 13, 2010.

Reception

Critical response to the album has been mostly positive. Will Dean of The Guardian called it "a classic break-up album".

Pitchfork's Zach Kelly, on the other hand, called it "by all accounts a break-up album, but one that's plodding, boring, and full of icky self-pity [...] Eventually, Everett's disassociation with himself results in a disassociation with the music, as each painfully plain entry becomes simply exhaustively dull."

Track listing

All tracks written by E.

The short spoken-word introduction is only available on the iTunes Store edition of the album.
