Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes released a new solo acoustic album, Ruminations, a couple of weeks back via Nonesuch. Last night Oberst stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform two songs from the album: "Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out" and "Gossamer Thin." Watch videos of both performances below.  

Oberst recorded the album in the winter of 2016 in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, after living in New York City for a decade. Oberst previously had this to say about the album's creation in a press release: "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."
