Ahead of their first full North American tour in 11 years, Bright Eyes have released “St Ides Heaven.” The Elliot Smith cover, taken from Letting Off The Happiness: A Companion – part of their forthcoming Companion series releases, the first three of which are to be released on Dead Oceans on May 27. The tour will be a continuation of shows performing songs from their most recent album, Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, as well as selections from across their catalog.

Last month, the band unveiled plans to re-issue all nine of their studio albums as a Companion series with additional recordings created together at their ARC Studios in Omaha. The album reissue series will be partnered with the release of a Companion EP of five new recordings of songs contained on the original release plus a cover version from an artist they found particularly inspiring at the time of the original recording. The Companion series gives Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott a chance to revisit some of their earlier material and re-work it entirely – with the occasional addition of various musicians.
