Last year's very good Conor Oberst solo album was not a one-time deal. He will be recording once more, non-Bright Eyes, for his next album, entitled Outer South. The album will drop May 5th.
This one seems like more of a collaboration with the Mystic Valley Band he tours with, as not every song was written by Oberst himself.
Personally, I'm excited. I really enjoyed Oberst's solo debut last year ("NYC, Gone, Gone" was one of my favorite songs), and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us. Click on for his tour dates with the Mystic Valley Band.04-09 Omaha, NE - The Slowdown
