Bright Eyes, the beloved indie rock band fronted by Conor Oberst, have stayed quiet since the release of the 2011 album The People's Key. That will change this year — in some form or another — since the band have launched a new Instagram account with a post captioned #BrightEyes2020. There's no information about what could be in works, but the band did undergo a massive six-album reissue campaign in 2016.

Oberst has continued to perform and release music solo since Bright Eyes began its hiatus. Last year, he released a collaborative album with Pheobe Bridgers called Better Oblivion Community Center. Oberst is also a member of the bands Desaparecidos and Monsters of Folk.
