Bright Eyes to release song for Sound Strike

Sound Strike, a coalition of artists openly boycotting Arizona in wake of the controversial SB 1070 immigration law will feature an exclusive contribution from Conor Oberst’s Bright Eyes pseudonym.

The song, entitled ‘Coyote Song‘ will be offered as one contribution to Zack De Le Rocha’s Sound Strike amongst others who are supporting the strike. These include the likes of Kanye West, Massive Attack, Spank Rock, Sonic Youth, Rage Against The Machine and more.

The song was described by Conor as concerning the lives of ‘two lovers separated by conditions that are out of their control, namely [government immigration policy]‘. You can hear more from him about the Sound Strike in the video below.
