Divus Julius presents: Bright Eyes

Conor Oberst formed Bright Eyes as a solo project in 1995, aged just 15. His first album, A Collection Of Songs Written And Recorded 1995–1997, was recorded in his basement and released on Saddle Creek Records. Distinctly adolescent  the album wasn’t well-reviewed. But with the addition of Mike Mogis and later Nate Walcott, Bright Eyes were impressively prolific over the following several years, releasing nine studio albums, multiple EPs, and several collaboration albums. They refined their sound, gaining critical acclaim without losing what made them special, and continued until 2011.

Bright Eyes have released their second comeback single, ‘Forced Convalescence’. The track follows on from recent drop ‘Persona Non Grata’, their first new material since 2011, and arrives ahead of a new album they’ve previously said will arrive this year “no matter what”.
