Bright Eyes leader Conor Oberst received a Four Winds ring from a mysterious stranger before setting off to Tepoztlan, Mexico, to have the relic blessed. "A Native American friend of mine did it for me during a visit to the Pyramid of the Sun," Oberst said about the ritual. "Now it feels extra-magical and I wear it all the time." The ring was inspiration for this song off his 2007 album Cassadaga. Driven by a deep-fried fiddle, “Four Winds” makes reference to a William Butler Yeats poem and ponders questions of biblical proportions.
