After teasing new material for a week, Bright Eyes are back with their tenth album, and first in four years. Set to release on September 20, Five Dice, All Threes was self-produced by the band and features talented musicians such as Cat Power and Matt Berninger, among others. According to the band’s Nate Walcott, the upcoming record will revisit the spirit of their older records, and in particular, touch upon the chaotic and ecstatic urgency in their older performances. Fellow band member Mike Mogis also compares it to their earlier albums, stating “It took us 20 years to make another record that sounds like a band playing live.”

The lead single, “Bells and Whistles,” proves them both right. It’s a bouncy track with catchy whistle tunes, blaring trumpets, and careful lyrics. “This is a song about the many little details in life that can seem insignificant or frivolous or temporary at the time, but eventually end up forming your destiny,” shares Conor Oberst, “And it’s also kind of a whistle while you work scenario.”

Although they won’t be coming to Philadelphia, their tour will kick off in Brooklyn, NY on September 19. Check out their full list of dates here, and watch the music video for “Bells and Whistles,” directed by Josh Boone and filmed in the band’s hometown Omaha, Nebraska below.
