Bright Eyes stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night (April 13), where they delivered a full-band rendition of ‘Dance and Sing’. Frontman Conor Oberst and longtime members Nate Walcott and Mike Mogis were joined by a large group of musicians, including a string and horn section. Watch the performance below.
‘Dance and Sing’ is taken from Bright Eyes’ latest album, Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, which landed in 2020. The band recently launched an effort to reissue the entire Bright Eyes catalog, with the re-release of their first three albums — A Collection of Songs Written and Recorded 1995-1997 (1998), Letting Off the Happiness (1998), and Fevers and Mirrors (2000) – arriving May 27 via Dead Oceans.
Bright Eyes will embark on a US tour next month, before heading to Europe in August.
