Today, Conor Oberst releases Upside Down Mountain, his new solo album. And last night, he was the musical guest on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, performing the album track “Zigzagging Toward The Light” with Dawes sitting in as his backing band. Oberst sang just about the entire song with his eyes closed, which seems like a weird thing to do when you’re on TV. As an online bonus, he also talked about his first concert — going to see (and performing with) his dad’s cover band. Watch the performance and the bonus video below.
Upside Down Mountain is out now on Nonesuch.
