Bright Eyes performed songs from their most recent studio album, Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, on a socially-distanced episode of CBS’ This Morning. They performed the early singles ‘Persona Non Grata’ and ‘Mariana Trench’. Check it out below.
During the performance, frontman Conor Oberst was accompanied by his bandmates Mike Mogis, Nathaniel Walcott, and bassist Anna Butterss, alongside the duo Lucius. Back in June, the freshly resuscitated group, who had big plans to tour in 2020, performed for the first time since their hiatus for a remote edition of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Also over the weekend, Bright Eyes recorded a cover of Thin Lizzy’s ‘Running Back’ during a live performance at SiriusXM. You can take a listen to their rendition below.
