Conor Oberst

Conor Oberst hasn’t released an album of new material since Bright Eyes’ 2011 LP The People’s Key. But today he’s announced a new solo album, Upside Down Mountain — his first release under the Conor Oberst name since 2009′s Outer South — and shared its first single, “Hundreds Of Ways.” It’s a buoyant rocker with an Afro-Caribbean rhythm and a robust horn section. Check it out; tour dates below.

  2. This is great. I like Conor best when he’s uptempo and with a full band.
