Bright Eyes has a new video today, fresh off the release of “The People’s Key” yesterday.
It’s the video for the first single (if you want to call it that), “Shell Games.”
It shows Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis, Nate Walcott, Laura Burhenn, a drummer I couldn’t make out and a bassist I don’t recognize (it’s not Matt Maginn, who played on the album) rocking out to the tune in someone’s house that looks like it’s been made up like a kid’s couch fort.
They they light some stuff on fire and play out in the snow.
I’m guessing it was either filmed in Omaha or in Europe, but I couldn’t make out any identifying landmarks.
Anyway, it’s a fun time. Kinda trippy.
The Guardian has the video exclusively for the moment, so go check it out.
Update: Saddle Creek posted it on its YouTube page. Now, I have it right here:
