Conor Oberst is set to release a new solo album, entitled ‘Upside Down Mountain’.
The LP will come out on May 20 and be supported by a North American tour. Ahead of the album release, Oberst is streaming a song from the record, the country-tinged ‘Hundreds of Ways’, which you can listen to below. The song will come out as an official Record Store Day release on April 19, as a limited edition 7″ with the song ‘Fast Friends’, reports Pitchfork.
The album was recorded in Nashville and, as previously reported, the Bright Eyes man has worked with First Aid Kit on the record, with the sister duo providing backing vocals throughout. The LP has been produced by musician Jonathan Wilson, who has also produced albums for LA based artists Father John Misty and Dawes.
“I tried to work with some big-name producers, and it was like, ‘This dude doesn’t know shit from shit,'” Oberst told Rolling Stone recently. Oberst’s last release under his own name was 2009’s ‘Outer South’, and in 2011 Bright Eyes released their eighth album, ‘The People’s Key’.
