Bright Eyes have confirmed details of their new album, ‘Down In The Weeds, Where The World Once Was’

The long-awaited new album is out on August 21st, with new track ‘Mariana Trench’ also revealed

Bright Eyes have confirmed all important details around their anticipated new album – with ‘Down In The Weeds, Where The World Once Was’ set for release on August 21st

Their first album in nearly nine years, ‘Down In The Woods…’ will be Bright Eyes’ 10th studio album – with the previously revealed ‘Persona Non Grata’, ‘Forced Covalescence’ and ‘One And Done’ all featuring on the hotly anticipated release (which is also set to feature appearances across the album from Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea and Queens Of The Stone Age’s Jon Theodore)

Alongside this, Bright Eyes have also shared a brand new track – with ‘Mariana Trench’ full of galloping swoons and earthy warmth. Speaking about the video, creators Art Camp explained: “The production of the video started at the beginning of quarantine and finished as people came back out of their homes and took to the streets together. In 18 different bedrooms across the world, listening to Bright Eyes, keeping each other company, we got the chance to collaborate on a story about embracing and celebrating change. The animation is composed of 2,200 hand-illustrated ink paintings based on original 3D animation and archival footage. We hope it makes you excited to imagine that everything could be new.”

Bright Eyes will return to the UK next year, with rescheduled dates in August/September alongside a headline slot at next year’s End Of The Road festival
