Bright Eyes have released their first new music since 2011 with the new single “Persona Non Grata”. It follows up their announcement of a world tour that was due to happen later this year, but may well be postponed as they are “reassessing”.

Hopefully “Persona Non Grata” is the first song to be heard from an album; that is certainly what is suggested by the band’s note, in which they can say: “It was hard to decide which song to share first because they are all quite different, but this one seemed as good of a place as any to start.”
