Conor Oberst Announces New Album ‘Ruminations’

Following an illness last Winter which forced Conor Oberst to cancel several shows with Desaparecidos and into his Omaha home for several months, the ever-prolific musician has announced the release of his latest record “Ruminations.” In 2014, Oberst release “Upside Down Mountain,” which featured more grandiose arrangements with horns, mandolin, and organ, “Ruminations” is a more minimalist composition, with only guitar, keyboard, harmonica, and Oberst’s ever-somber vocals.
