The record officially came out yesterday, and today we get our first look at the video for "Shell Game," directed by Lovely, Still / InDreama's Nik Fackler and featuring the band rocking out in what looks like a cabin in the woods and in the snow with a bonfire. Watch the video.
In other Bright Eyes news: Noisevox's John Norris (remember him from MTV?) speaks with Oberst about the inception and creation of the new album, his work with the Mystic Valley Band and Monsters of Folk, how spirituality and science fiction play into his work and the future of the band. Check out the full-length interview.
