EEFLP (along with the Make Some Noise EP) marks the final release of English Electric material, which began work as early as 2010, and was the last release of new material from the band until the EP Wassail in 2015. There is a new edition of EEFLP with different cover under the name of English Electric in 2016.
Each song on the album tells a different story, many of them centering around characters living and working in England, with reference to the country's industrial past and processes which have changed its landscape. Full lyrics as well as descriptions of the stories behind the songs are included in the 96-page booklet of EEFLP. Additionally, Greg Spawton and David Longdon discussed the meanings of the tracks on the two initially released "parts" of English Electric in blogs leading up to the releases of those albums.
