Check Out: New Bright Eyes, “Shell Games”

In a recent interview with Billboard, Conor Oberst suggested that his forthcoming Bright Eyes album, The People’s Key, would be a bit more “rocking” than some of his more recent efforts. Now you can hear what he means by streaming the album track “Shell Games” below (via 24B). The track can also be downloaded here.

The 10-track People’s Key arrives February 15th via Saddle Creek Records. The album’s artwork can be found above and tracklist below. Those who pre-order via iTunes will receive the non-album bonus track “Singularity”. Opt to send your money to Saddle Creek instead and you’ll earn “Singularity” as well as another bonus track, “In the Real World”.

Welcome back, Bright Eyes.
