Last week Bright Eyes was announced as an addition to the bill for Planned Parenthood’s upcoming “Village Of Love,” the Virtual Fundraising Festival on Sunday October 25. The band has unveiled a brand new song – “Miracle Of Life” – released in partnership with the 7-Inches for Planned Parenthood Collective, as with all proceeds from sales, streaming, and syncs will go directly to Planned Parenthood. The track is available today exclusively via Bandcamp for $1 download and will be available on all streaming platforms from October 28th.
Says Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst of the track, “This song should not exist in 2020 America. It is a protest song, I guess. Or maybe just a little story about what was, what still is in many parts of the world and what could be again here in this country if the GOP is successful in reshaping the Supreme Court and rolling back all of the hard-fought progress made for reproductive rights in the last fifty years. Hopefully, if we all work together and vote, it will make this song sound as irrelevant and outdated as it should.“
