Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst Announces New Album 'Ruminations'

Conor Oberst

(Radio.com) Conor Oberst has announced a new album titled Ruminations which will be released on October 14th. The solo acoustic album features 10 new songs written by the Bright Eyes principle.

He had the following to say about the effort, "I wasn't expecting to write a record. 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." See the track details here.
