New Music - Bright Eyes, "Tourist Trap"

Bright Eyes announces US tour dates along with Four Winds single and Cassadaga CD/LP.

Today I got an email from the folks at Saddle Creek, the recording home of Bright Eyes. Included was an mp3 of a song to be included on the upcoming Four Winds single/EP. Check it out here:

MP3 - Tourist Trap

They also had this exciting information to pass on, some you may know, some that you certainly don’t:

Cassadaga, the new full-length from Bright Eyes, will be released on April 10. The first single from the album, Four Winds, is set to be released as the Four Winds CD/12" on March 6 and will include 5 exclusive b-sides.

Touring for Cassadaga and Four Winds will begin on February 25 in Chicago. A full list of dates is below. Tickets will go on sale January 25. This smaller tour will be followed by a full US tour in the spring.”

With the once revolving line-up of musicians settled on the three constants of Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nate Walcott, Bright Eyes spent much of 2006 in the studio working on their follow-up to the acclaimed simultaneous releases Digital Ash in a Digital Urn and I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning. The first single from these sessions, "Four Winds", is presented here along with 5 exclusive B-sides.

Retaining the simmering glow of its predecessors, Four Winds is full of the magic that brought Bright Eyes to international attention. Carefully played, deftly poetic and quietly enchanting, the release has a wandering country charm and all of the story-telling seductiveness of earlier work.

Four Winds and Cassadaga were recorded in various studios in New York City, Los Angeles, Portland, OR and Lincoln, NE. The sessions included a host of guest performers including M.Ward, David Rawlings, Gillian Welch and Janet Weiss of Sleater-Kinney.”

I can't wait to see Bright Eyes in LA at such a small venue. Thanks for the tune!
