As promised awhile back, Bright Eyes has dropped another track for you to download from its awaited album, “The People’s Key.”
This time, it’s track five, “Haile Selassie.” It’s one of my favorite tracks on the record, actually. It’s kind of atmospheric with all of the instruments overlapping in the background, but stays grounded with a rhythmic guitar riff.
Due Feb. 15, “The People’s Key” isn’t really a brother to “I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning” or full of acoustic folk. Nope, they plugged in the guitars and turned on the synthesizers for this one.
The real Haile Selassie was the emperor of Ethiopia for more than 40 years and is thought of as the returned Messiah by Rastafarians.
Download the track below and enjoy!
