Bright Eyes - "Haile Selassie"

Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes @ Bottom Of The Hill, from the HAD Archive

It was news to us to stumble upon this, but it turns out that Bright Eyes' latest The People's Cay drops on February 15th. What does this mean for you? Well, it means that there's a new record of original material from one of a generations's best song writers, and it's liable to be damned good.

In fact, if the lead track "Haile Selassie" is any indicator, then it's certain to be damned good. The track sees Conor Oberst returning to his more flexible sonic inclinations, with less of a leaning towards folk traditionalism, and more of a willingness to embrace some electronica. It definitely works to his advantage, so much so that we can't wait to hear more!
