Bright Eyes have shared a cover of Vic Chesnutt’s ‘Flirted With You All My Life’, from the late artist’s penultimate album ‘At the Cut’, released in 2009.

“I had the pleasure of seeing Vic perform many times over the years and from a young age,” frontman Conor Oberst says of his relationship with the poignant track.

“I can truly say he deeply changed my worldview and what it meant to write a really unique and thought-provoking song. One of the greatest ever. Always missed. Here is our humble version of one of his best.”

The cover is taken from Bright Eyes’ ‘Persona Non Grata’ 7″, a single from their 2020 album ‘Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was’.
