Conor Oberst will release a new and band-packed album, Salutations, March 17th. Following the albums announcement, Oberst unleashed his music video for “A Little Uncanny”, a single from his upcoming LP.
The artist’s eleventh album will feature The Felice Brothers, legendary drummer Jim Keltner (George Harrison, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, and more), Jim James, Gillian Welch, Blake Mills, Jonathan Wilson, and many more surprise co-creators. Oberst’s follow-up of his 2016 release Ruminations was produced by Kelter and Andy LeMaster, a long time compatriot in his musical career.
As a preview for the upcoming LP, “A Little Uncanny” does not disappoint. Oberst, drawing his audience back to the world of VHS and surreal celebrity obsession, paints his past, present, and future in dark and grainy quality. From his birth through harmonica to his cheese doodled end, Oberst’s almost Dylan-esc tune is a sure-fire melody for the masses.
The 17-song piece does not stand on its own, however. In the spirit of blatant humanity, Oberst has teamed up with Plus 1, allowing $1 from every ticket sale on his upcoming tour will be donated to Planned Parenthood. This will help to provide reproductive health care, sex ed, and bountiful information for millions worldwide.
The tour, set to begin at the Sydney Opera House on February 27th, will cross the Pacific to begin a four month stint across the United States. Information on these dates will be available here. Pre-order for Salutations is available at iTunes and Nonesuch Store.
