EELS’ E (aka Mark E Everett) has recorded a special video message and a new version of ‘Archie Goodnight’ for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ahead of the christening of their son, Archie.
The frontman shared the clip earlier today, 5 July, in which he told the Duke and Duchess of Sussex he had forgiven them for giving their first child the same name as his son.
“I wanted to send you this special message to say no hard feelings about stealing my son’s name,” he said. “In fact, I’m going to sing you a special song from the new EELS album, The Deconstruction, a lullaby for my Archie. You can sing along to it with your Archie. We can both use it.”
E then performed ‘Archie Goodnight’, which features lyrics including: “So it’s time to go to sleep/Don’t make a peep/Little Archie, goodnight to you.” You can watch the video below.
