May 5, 2010

Eli’s video for forthcoming single Come And Get It is here, and it funks out for real!

Watch it here:

Single and album, both titled Come And Get It drop in the UK this Monday coming May 10th!

Eli’s tour also kicks-off next Monday with a show at London’s Scala, with further dates in Manchester, Brighton, Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin.

Full deets on Eli’s UK site, where you can also download album closer Explosion for free!

Finally, check out some press praise that our boy has been getting with the new record.

“Recognition flashes might suggest Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett or Sam Cooke but this is absorption and re-imagination not imitation. Surrounded by punchy horns [and] crackling guitar licks… this is one Paperboy who delivers” – Mojo

“By giving 60s soul a White Stripes like no-nonsense makeover he’s made an unholy racket that sounds like Rocket From The Crypt in a barroom brawl with the James Brown Band” – Classic Rock

“His voice has become a powerhouse somewhere between Al Green and Otis Redding… the horn-filled arrangements, his driving Stax-fuelled band and that voice carry him through” – Q

“Irresistible. And boy, the fellow can sing” – Uncut
