Bright Eyes are back with their first new album in nine years, Down in the Weeds Where the World Once Was.
The grand new record, which marks their follow-up to 2011’s The People’s Key, sees Bright Eyes with their biggest sound yet. Clocking in at just under an hour, the record comes packed with intricate, orchestral arrangements and shimmering synth lines.
“Even though we all collaborate with different people all the time, I think the connection the three of us have is probably the most intimate,” frontman Conor Oberst tells Consequence of Sound. “It feels the most like home, I’d say, after all the projects I’ve been involved with. It was nice to get that feeling back after so long.”
