Bright Eyes have announced that they will play two intimate shows in the UK next month.

The shows in Oxford and London on March 16 and 17, will precede the release of new album “Cassadaga” on April 9.

Recorded with core-members Conor Oberst, Nate Walcott and Mike Mogis at sessions across the US, the album features several guest musicians.

Gillian Welch, former Sleater Kinney, Janet Weiss, M.Ward, Maria Taylor, Ben Kweller and Rilo Kiley’s Jason Boesel all contribute.

“Cassadaga,” named after a spiritual community in Florida, is the follow-up to Bright Eyes’ simultaneous 2005 album releases “I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning” and “Digital Ash In A Digital Urn.”

The new album will be released throughout the world by Polydor after the group signed a deal last year. They remain with their hometown Omaha label, Saddlecreek, in the US.

Details of the UK shows are:

London, KoKo, £17.50 (March 16)
Oxford Brookes Uni, £16.00 (17)

The album will be preceded with a new single “Four Winds” on April 2, but if you can’t wait that long, you can download a brand new track from the recording sessions by clicking here!
