Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst (of Bright Eyes) have teamed up as the new band Better Oblivion Community Center and last week they surprise released their self-titled debut album via Dead Oceans (it’s out on CD/vinyl February 22). On Saturday they stopped by CBS This Morning to perform three songs from the album: “Dylan Thomas,” “Didn’t Know What I Was In For,” and “My City.” Watch all three performances below.

The band previously stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to announce the project and perform the album’s “Dylan Thomas.” “Dylan Thomas” was also one of our Songs of the Week.

The album features the following players: Phoebe Bridgers (vocals, baritone guitar), Conor Oberst (vocals, piano), Nick Zinner (guitar), Carla Azar (drums, percussion), Anna Butterss (upright bass), Christian Lee Hutson (guitar), Andy LeMaster (samples), and Taylor Hollingsworth (sampled voice).

Phoebe Bridgers, Conor Oberst, and Andy LeMaster produced the album, which was engineered by LeMaster at Fivestar Studio in Los Angeles and mixed by John Congleton. Bridgers and Oberst wrote all the songs except for “Chesapeake” and “Forest Lawn,” which were written by Bridgers, Oberst, and Christian Lee Hutson, and “Dominos,” which was written by Taylor Hollingsworth.

The project was recently teased via a hotline you could call to get a strange answering machine message (check out the YouTube video of it below). A press release promises that tour dates will be announced soon.

Bridgers released her debut album, Stranger in the Alps, back in September 2017 via Dead Oceans and then released a deluxe digital version in October 2018, also via Dead Oceans. Last year Bridgers also teamed up with fellow singer/songwriters Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus to form supergroup Boygenius, whose self-titled debut EP was released in October via Matador. Bridgers and Oberst have collaborated before, for example he sang on Stranger in the Alps“Would You Rather” and appeared in the song’s video.
