We've already heard two singles from The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett, and now the Eels frontman has released another taste of the new record.

"Where I'm From" is a vintage folk-inspired ballad full of bittersweet nostalgia and fancy guitar pickin'. Brushed drums tap out a train beat behind the multi-layered strings and the wistful chorus: "So long ago, I left it in the dust / I was so young and dumb / Ran far away, but I have to admit / Sometimes I miss where I'm from." It's the musical equivalent of sitting on the front porch on a rainy afternoon. Take a listen to the track above.

Be sure to listen to “Agatha Chang” and “Mistakes of My Youth” as well. The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett will be out April 22nd. Pre-order the record at Amazon.
