As previously reported , this song is among 17 tracks due for the Josh Boone-directed drama, scored and performed by Bright Eyes members Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Wolcott. The official version is out in a month, but in the meantime, mark all occasions with this live take he performed on The Current last fall:

It seems like Conor Oberst will have a very busy schedule this fall! In addition to scheduling two local shows with his band Desaparecidos in November, the singer-songwriter has also added some solo dates in October with the The Felice...
Conor Oberst now has a Gold record to his name, as Bright Eyes' album I'm Wide Awake It's Morning has just sold over 500,000 copies. The album was released in 2005 on Saddle Creek records in Omaha, NE, spurred largely by the album's lead single and supreme bummer jam "Lua" taking the top spot on the Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Sales chart. Saddle Creek owner Robb Nansel wrote of the occasion: Saddle Creek recently received notice from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) that the Bright Eyes album I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning has [...]
Omaha's Desaparecidos are returning with the original line up for a small tour this fall. The band released 2002's critically lauded Read Music / Speak Spanish , then stopped playing together for nearly ten years. They returned in 2012 with two self-released 7-inches which can be found here. Conor Oberst (also of Bright Eyes ) will do a handful of solo dates before the tour begins with The Felice Brothers.
After a successful jaunt around the East Coast this past fall that ended in a blow-out New York City 10-year reunion show, Desaparecidos, the Nebraska-based 5-piece fronted by Conor Oberst, return for more....
Conor Obert’ s reunited punk band, Desaparecidos , has been rather tricky with issuing tour dates. Over the last year, they've whisked through various markets across North America, and that's a trend they'll continue this fall. They've just announced a block of dates for October across a number of Midwestern cities, specifically Chicago, Cleveland, St. Louis, Detroit, and Nashville, in addition to some southern (Austin, New Orleans) and western (Englewood, Los Angeles) flair. Consult the full itinerary below, along with a stream of their reunion track, "Anonymous". Desaparecidos 2013 Tour Dates: [...]
"To me, Conor Oberst resembles Patti Smith a great deal," R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe told me in an interview back in 2008. "As a performer, as a magnet. He's just got that thing that she's got." The "thing" Stipe refers to has both captivated legions of followers of Oberst's band Bright Eyes, and alienated nearly equal numbers of cynical detractors. Read More...

Flower Orgy wasn't a band that was on my radar until I heard this new track they released to preview their upcoming 73. My first listen really reminds me of that intimate quality that Conor Oberst had as a bright-eyed young kid. There's light brushes of piano playing behind a quietly strummed guitar. This is definitely a song that I can see myself listening to for some time, which makes me excited to meet the work of Nate Luce and Flower Orgy. The new 73 will be available on May 14th.
In what seems to be becoming a trend, Desparecidos reunited to play a show more than 10 years after they came and went from the music scene in 2001-2002. CMJ provides a good analogy in their review of this show: "Conor Oberst is to indie-rock fans in their late 20s, early 30s, as Justin Bieber is to tween pop enthusiasts." I remember how seriously everyone took him to be and how frustrated I was that when he sang he always sounded like he was simultaneously slitting his wrists. 10 years later, Oberst has decided to put that fervent [...]

A cavallo tra gennaio e febbraio, nei giorni a ridosso dell’inizio del tour dei rinati Desaparecidos e quando ancora non è ben chiaro il futuro dei Bright Eyes , Conor Oberst ha deciso di far assaporare anche alla vecchia Europa la sua performance acustica con la quale ha girato gli Stati Uniti nel 2012, spinto anche dalla ristampa di "Fevers and Mirrors" e dell’EP "There Is No Beginning to the Story". Parigi, la città romantica, ci accoglie con pochi gradi sopra lo zero ed un brutto cielo grigio. La movida di Bastille [...]

El talentoso Conor Oberst volvió a aparecer no como solista, no con Bright Eyes , sino con la banda que formó en 2002, y reformó el año pasado , Desaparecidos .

“This next song is a nostalgic song,” Bright Eyes singer and former bright young hope Conor Oberst says, introducing the fifth song in to his first solo set round these parts for a good few years, as the photo pass-clad select make their way to find their allotted seats. “Just,” he continues, “nostalgia for the future.” It’s a strange premise, this slightly off-the-cuff remark, but something a little applicable to the night’s events; an evening with a setlist resembling a scattered covering of [...]
