    Conor Oberst Releases Vinyl 7-Inch for Record Store Day Black Friday

    Today is the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, and that means one thing: Black Friday, the busiest, shopping day of the year. While that can make for a less than ideal shopping experience, indie record stores across the country have gotten together to help keep up the holiday cheer with Record Store Day Black Friday, offering unique recordings from some of your favorite artists, including a new, limited-edition, black 7" vinyl by Conor Oberst, available at independent record shops. The vinyl features a new full-band recording of "Tachycardia," a song on Oberst's new solo album, Ruminations, paired with "Afterthought," an unreleased track from the Ruminations recording sessions. The disc was pressed at Record Industry in the Netherlands.

    Today's Black Friday release follows the October 14 release of Ruminations on Nonesuch. "Ruminations is one of Conor Oberst's most personal records," says NPR Music's Bob Boilen, "a collection of brave, dark songs ... that are unmistakably moving and contain some of Oberst's best lyrics and imagery." Glide magazine says "Ruminations is one of those albums that will inevitably rank as a landmark in Oberst’s trajectory," likening it to Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska, Bob Dylan's Blood on the Track, and Leonard Cohen's Songs of Love and Hate.

    To get Ruminations now, head to your local record shop, iTunes, Amazon, or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; the album is also available to purchase there as 192kHz/24bit HD FLAC files. All formats of Ruminations are now an additional 15% off the everyday low price listed in the Nonesuch Store as part of our anniversary sale. You can also hear the album on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Obert resumes his Ruminations tour in his hometown of Omaha on November 3. For tour details, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Olivia Chaney's new album, Shelter, is out now on Nonesuch. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, the album is eight original songs plus Chaney's takes on songs by Purcell and the Everly Brothers. She has also released a video for the track "House on a Hill," filmed at the rustic, 18th-century cottage in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors where she wrote the record. Watch it here. The Observer cites Chaney's "dazzling vocals" and calls Shelter "an elegant, luminous album." Uncut calls it "transcendent refuge from the storm." The Daily Mirror says it's "a triumph."
