Dawes Partner With Conor Oberst for Record Store Day
Tue, 11 Mar 2014 14:19:57
Dawes x Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) is not just about a tour. It's about a RSD collabo too -- we are stoked.
Los Angeles-based rock band Dawes will release a limited edition seven-inch for Record Store Day, which is Saturday, April 19. This exclusive split will feature Dawes covering the Bright Eyes song "Easy/Lucky/Free" and Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes covering Dawes' "Million Dollar Bill."
Rad, right? We love the cool, cyclical cover.
Dawes will be appearing on Oberst's spring tour as "Special Guests." They are opening the shows supporting their 2013 album Stories Don't End AND acting as Oberst's band for the tour.
