Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band’s Outer South Album Art

For the forthcoming Outer South, Conor Oberst’s left the eponymous cave and woken up from his solitary nap in his best hammock to put on a pink sweater and a blindfold and make time with his Mystic Valley Band in a very brown room. The blind leading the fashionably shambled? A plea to Extreme Makeover Home Edition: El Paso? Penance for the bad mirrored shades in the above pic? You decide:

Outer South is out 5/4 in the UK via Wichita and 5/5 in the U.S. via Merge. The guys will be at Coachella.
