Bright Eyes Take a Look at Royal Oak...

Bright Eyes will release The People’s Key on February 15th 2011 on Saddle Creek. The People’s Key – the band’s seventh studio album - is the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2007’s acclaimed Cassadaga.

Since 2006 the once revolving cast of Bright Eyes players has settled around permanent members Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott, with additional musicians joining them in the studio and on tour. Fully realized and bursting with charisma, The People’s Key is an assured and accomplished album, artfully arranged and filled with the engaging and mesmeric songwriting for which Oberst is renowned. Recorded in Omaha, Nebraska, at the band’s own ARC Studios, The People’s Key was produced by Mike Mogis and engineered by Mogis and Andy LeMaster.

Bright Eyes will play Royal Oak Music Theatre (Royal Oak, MI) on March 14th. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 17th.

Full track list for The People’s Key:
1 Firewall
2 Shell Games
3 Jejune Stars
4 Approximate Sunlight
5 Haile Selassie
6 A Machine Spiritual (In The People’s Key)
7 Triple Spiral
8 Beginner’s Mind
9 Ladder Song
10 One For You, One For Me
