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.
“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,” said Oberst in a prepared statement.
