Oh Conor, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways.
Singer-songwriter Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes fame has signed to Nonesuch Records, which will release his new solo album Upside Down Mountain on May 20.
Prior to the album landing, a limited-edition seven-inch single will be released exclusively for Record Store Day, which is Saturday, April 19. This special single will feature album track "Hundreds of Ways," along with album outtake "Fast Friends" on the B-side.
Listen to "Hundreds of Ways" below.
Oberst kicks off the first leg of a world tour in support of the new album on May 8 in North Carolina. His friends and colleagues Dawes appear on the bill as "Special Guests" – both opening the shows and acting as Oberst's band for the tour, so they are pulling double duty.
Tickets go on sale on Valentine's Day – Friday, February 14.
It'll be spring. Go see a show. Go see Conor Oberst.
