Nebraska band BRIGHT EYES fronted by emotive songwriter and
spellbinding vox CONOR OBERST had their latest, magical album,
their 10th, Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was out
two years ago.

Now they have planned reissues from early albums under the banner
of Companion Series. The first part features the band’s first three LPs.

Ahead of that Bright Eyes recorded their version of ST. IDES HEAVEN.
A beloved song from the late great ELLIOTT SMITH‘s self-titled debut LP
from 1995. Their take is much heavier and rocks out with vehemence .
