Upside Down Mountain
on May 20 2014
Singer-songwriter Conor Oberst has signed to Nonesuch Records, which releases his new solo album Upside Down Mountain on May 20 2014.
Best known for his work in Bright Eyes, Oberst has also played in several other bands, including Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band and Monsters of Folk.
Prior to the new album release, a limited-edition seven-inch single will be released exclusively for Record Store Day (Saturday April 19). This special single will feature the album track “Hundreds of Ways” along with album outtake “Fast Friends” on the B-side. You can listen to “Hundreds of Ways” below.
Oberst kicks off the first leg of a world tour in support of the new album on May 8 in North Carolina. His friends and colleagues Dawes appear on the bill as “Special Guests”—both opening the shows and acting as Oberst’s band for the tour. Tickets are now on sale to the general public.
