Usually the notion of a new Bright Eyes song would be met with a certain level of 'wooo-ness' but it's not strictly a new Bright Eyes song in the sense of 'looking forward to hearing this on a new album' and nor is it for a joyous occasion. It was recorded for The Sound Strike, which is an artists boycott of Arizona and their quite shocking treatment of immigrants. In an open letter to Artists Conor Oberst said: “American ideals of democracy and liberty are built on the foundation that all people, regardless of race or country of origin, deserve fair and equal treatment by the government . . . We’ve all seen the power music has to spread messages of solidarity and hope. Please join the Sound Strike Songs project by donating a track and help us . . . enable people to continue to dream.” This exclusive collection of songs will be for sale at http://www.thesoundstrike.net/ for $2. The proceeds from the sale of this song online will benefit The Florence Project, a non-profit organization providing free legal help to immigrants caught in the detention and deportation system in Arizona. http://www.thesoundstrike.net/ http://www.thisisbrighteyes.com/
