Conor Oberst to Release New Album!

One of our top ten favorite artists of last year,  Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band will release a brand new album, entitled Outer South, on May 5th on Merge Records.

COLOR US EXCITED!
[Here’s one of the new songs!]



Here’s some more info for those of you interested:

Outer South was recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillio, outside El Paso, Texas in November/December and features the same talented group of musicians as were present on last year’s acclaimed Conor Oberst album.


The Mystic Valley Band are Taylor Hollingsworth, Nik Freitas, Macey Taylor, Nathaniel Walcott and Jason Boesel.


Outer South is a spectacular 16-track album featuring songs written by Oberst, Jason Boesel, Nik Freitas, and Taylor Hollingsworth, some of which were part of the live show from late last year including “Nikorette” which they performed on Late Night With Conan O’Brien in November.
