Bright Eyes recently detailed their Companion series releases that will be released over the course of the year. Today, the band unveiled a cover from the collection, Elliott Smith’s “St. Ides Heaven.” The song features Phoebe Bridgers as well.

 

 

Released ahead of Bright Eyes’ first North American tour in 11 years, the cover hails from Smith’s 1995 self-titled sophomore album. The song will appear on Letting Off The Happiness: A Companion, which is the first of three EPs to be released by Bright Eyes on May 27 via Dead Oceans.

Bright Eyes will kick off their massive stint tomorrow, March 23, in St. Paul Minnesota. The band will perform tracks off their latest record, Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, and songs from across their discography.

The Companion series project by Bright Eyes will bring 54 new recordings over the year and is available for pre-order.
