It was only a few months ago that DiS was banging on about Conor Oberst's first solo album and now there's a release date for the second.
On 4th May 2009 Outer South will be released in the UK (and Europe!) by those ever-wonderful fellows at Wichita Recordings. As mentioned in our news 'drowned-up' last week, Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band recorded the 16-track album at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillio, outside El Paso, Texas in November/December last year.
The album includes 'Nikorette' which they performed on Late Night With Conan O’Brien back in November which you can see here...
The Mystic Valley Band, that's Conor Oberst plus Taylor Hollingsworth, Nik Freitas, Macey Taylor, Nathaniel Walcott and Jason Boesel will play the Coachella Festival this spring. For more visit conoroberst.com
