Eels front man Mark Oliver Everett brings together  "an album full of spontaneous band collaborations" for their 16th studio album, and as the title suggests, it's chalk full of his experiences. 

"Everyone knows that if you want to write something convincing, you write about what you know," says Everett, "and what I know best are my experiences. I'm so lucky in so many ways, but it hasn't been easy. I may as well have been raised by wolves. I've had to figure everything out the hard way, through trial and error. I grew up very fast in some ways, and very slow in others. These are some of the trials and errors."
