I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning is one of two Bright Eyes albums (along with Digital Ash in a Digital Urn) released on January 25, 2005, by Saddle Creek Records.
The music video for "First Day of My Life" was directed by John Cameron Mitchell.
"Road to Joy" contains an interpolation of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy". The title of the album is taken from a lyric in this song.
They achieved success in the charts when the singles "Lua" and "Take It Easy (Love Nothing)" took the top two positions in the Billboard Hot Singles Sales chart in 2004. In 2005, the band set off on a two-part world tour to promote the album along with Digital Ash in a Digital Urn, with the first half of the tour centring around the folk-influenced first album, and the latter half featuring the more electronic second album. Both records made it into the Top 20 of the Billboard album charts, with I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning peaking at number 10 on the Billboard 200 chart and at number 2 on the Billboard independent albums chart. The tour was captured on Motion Sickness, released later in the year.
Like the two Bright Eyes albums before it, I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning opens with a spoken recording, this time by Conor
