Ruminations Due Out October 14 via Nonesuch

Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes is releasing a new solo album, Ruminations, on October 14 via Nonesuch. It is described as a solo acoustic album. No actual songs from the album have been shared since the album was announced in early August and the album isn’t due out for two more weeks, but now you can stream the whole thing below via NPR First Listen. Perhaps Oberst wanted his fans to digest this collection in one sitting?

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.”
