Bright Eyes Sets 2022 Tour Dates and Expansive Reissue/Re-Recorded Album Series

Long-running indie band Bright Eyes announced an extensive set of tour dates on Tuesday that will keep the Conor Oberst-led group quite busy for much of the rest of the year.

The news came paired with even more exciting plans from the band, which moved its entire recording catalog to the Secretly Group last year. In commemoration of that partnership, Bright Eyes will reissue all nine of its studio albums as a ‘Companion’ series.

Per a news release, that means:

The album reissue series will be partnered with the release of a Companion EP of five new recordings of songs contained on the original release plus a cover version from an artist they found particularly inspiring at the time of the original recording. The Companion series gives Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott a chance to revisit some of their earlier material and re-work it entirely – with the occasional addition of some talented friends. This ambitious project will see the release of 54 new recordings over the coming year.

Pre-orders are up for the reissues — click here for more. 

As a preview of the reissue/re-recording project, Bright Eyes shared three new recordings from the project. Here’s “Falling Out of Love At This Volume”:

Here’s “Contrast And Compare” (feat. Waxahatchee):
