“The production of the video started at the beginning of quarantine and finished as people came back out of their homes and took to the streets together,” Camp said in a statement. “In 18 different bedrooms across the world, listening to Bright Eyes, keeping each other company, we got the chance to collaborate on a story about embracing and celebrating change. The animation is composed of 2,200 hand-illustrated ink paintings based on original 3D animation and archival footage. We hope it makes you excited to imagine that everything could be new.”
Bright Eyes will be performing “Mariana Trench” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert tonight (June 22) on CBS. They previously released “Persona Non Grata,” “Forced Convalescence” and “One and Done.”
