The platitude-filled “Jejune Stars,” from Bright Eyes’ latest album The People’s Key, gets a video full of fireworks and sparklers. Conor Oberst’s band plays in front of the light show, in silhouette. It seems to fit the song’s title: it’s beautiful, but kinda empty. The video was directed by Lance Acord, who was the cinematographer for Where the Wild Things Are, Lost In Translation, Buffalo ’66, and many other films. (It’s too bad he didn’t use a sunrise in this video, because he’s great a filming natural light.) Watch:
