Three years after his last album, Conor Oberst's Bright Eyes is back with the two highest bows of its career. Released simultaneously, the acoustic-driven "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" (Saddle Creek) bows at No. 10 with 56,000 units, while the more experimental "Digital Ash in a Digital Urn" starts at No. 15 with 46,000 copies. Previously, the act spent only one week on the big chart at No. 161 with 2002's "Lifted or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground," which has sold 200,000 to date.
