Bright Eyes detail new album 'Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was'

Having been teasing us about a new album for the last few months, Bright Eyes have finally announced the full details behind their long-awaited new studio LP.

The new full-length 'Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was' will become their first record since 2011's 'The People's Key', and will include the previously shared tracks 'One and Done', 'Forced Convalescence' and 'Persona Non Grata' as well as the newly unveiled offering 'Mariana Trench' when it arrives on the 21st August via Dead Oceans.

The mesmerising video for 'Mariana Trench' was created by Art Camp. Speaking on the creation of the video, Art Camp states: “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.”
