Conor Oberst’s self-titled LP is scheduled for release 8/5, but it was available on CD in Brazil last week. At least that’s what the folky told his audience after spotting a copy at Studio SP in Sao Paulo on the opening night of his current tour. (It leaked to torrent sites over the weekend.) Backed by his Mystic Valley Band, Conor performed a handful of new songs including “Eagle On A Pole” and “Get-Well-Cards.” We’ve got YouTube of those, along with an MP3 from the album, after the jump.
“Eagle On a Pole” > “Falling Out Of Love”
