Conor Oberst announces new solo album

‘Ruminations’ is coming this October.
Conor Oberst has announced details of a new solo album.

Titled ‘Ruminations’, the full-length is set for release on October 14th via Nonesuch. Recorded last winter at ARC Studios in Omaha, the whole thing was laid down in a 48 hour period, featuring Oberst playing by himself.

“I wasn’t expecting to write a record,” he explains. “I honestly wasn’t expecting to do much of anything. Winter in Omaha can have a paralyzing effect on a person but in this case it worked in my favor. I was just staying up late every night playing piano and watching the snow pile up outside the window. Next thing I knew I had burned through all the firewood in the garage and had more than enough songs for a record. I recorded them quick to get them down but then it just felt right to leave them alone.”
