Oberst in 'Jejune Stars'

"Jejune Stars" is one of the highlights from Bright Eyes' latest album The People's Key - a balls-out, New Wave-style "song of redemption." Conor Oberst and Co. have just released a video, which perfectly matches the amped-up vibe of the track, with the sort of big-budget production that'd befit a hair metal video from the '80s.

Lance Acord - who did the cinematography for Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are - helmed the clip, and he places Oberst and crew on an empty stage in the middle of a moonlit desert. There are fireworks and other cool pyrotechnics as the band rocks with reckless abandon in front of an audience of... no one. Which begs the question: if Bright Eyes perform a gig and there's no one around to hear it, does it still make a sound? You bet.
