Bright Eyes have released a third song from their forthcoming new album.

LISTEN TO “ONE AND DONE” HERE

“This whole town looks empty, but we knew it wouldn’t last/ Behind bulletproof windows they’re still wiring the cash/ Whatever they could scrape up, whatever that they had/ there’s a lot of mouths to feed through this famine,” sings Conor Oberst on “One and Done,” showcasing his knack for cultural clairvoyance once again. Written and recorded before COVID-19, the song reflects a resignation in the singer’s mind as to what seems like the final days of a civilization and the rapid disintegration of one’s long held worldview. A beautifully melancholic piece of pure Bright Eyes, replete with an awe inducing orchestral arrangement, courtesy of the band’s Nathaniel Walcott. Mike Mogis makes sense of the vast instrumentation with his meticulous, signature mix. This track once again features the powerhouse rhythm section of Jon Theodore and Flea, as well as haunted harmonies from Miwi La Lupa.
