Bright Eyes appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night (June 21), where they delivered a performance of ‘Falling Out of Love at This Volume’. Conor Oberst wrote the song in his teenage years and released it as part of the first Bright Eyes album, A Collection of Songs Written and Recorded 1995-1997. Watch the performance below.
Earlier this year, Bright Eyes announced reissues of three of their early albums, also including Letting Off the Happiness and Fevers and Mirrors. Arriving on May 27 via Dead Oceans, the reissues will each be accompanied by a “companion” EP featuring reworkings of the original songs with guests including Waxahatchee, Phoebe Bridgers, and others.
Bright Eyes are currently touring North America. Last month, it was reported that frontman Conor Oberst walked off stage after two songs during their concert in Houston, leaving the band to attempt “Bright Eyes karaoke” with audience members until the show had to be canceled.
