Bright Eyes debuted the new video for "Jejune Stars," and the video was directed by Lance Acord, often-times Spike Jonze's cinematographer, and features the band playing in the desert and amidst fireworks.
Recently, lead singer Conor Oberst sat down with MTV Hive to discuss the band's future. Go here to read more.
But here is a sampling from the interview.
Straightaway, there's rumors that The People's Key could be the last Bright Eyes record. Is this group retiring?
"We're not really sure. Never say never is my position on all the bands I've played with. There might come a time or place when it feels right to do it again. I don't see us doing anything in the foreseeable future after this. We have pretty separate lives at this point. It was necessary for me to step away after the last record and make a record with different people. [With] the Mystic Valley Band, the biggest difference is it's such a live band. I start playing a song in a room and everyone starts playing along; it's very organic, where Bright Eyes has been basically a studio project. We built the songs in the studio, and then we form a band and tour it."
