    Conor Oberst, Dawes Split 7" Recordings "Million Dollar Bill," "Easy/Lucky/Free" Now Available Digitally

    The 2014 Record Store Day split vinyl 7" single on which Conor Oberst and Dawes covered each other's tunes—Oberst performing Dawes' "Million Dollar Bill" and Dawes performing the Bright Eyes song "Easy/Lucky/Free"—is now available digitally to download and stream here.

    "As far as I’m concerned, between Bright Eyes and his solo records, Conor Oberst is one of the greatest songwriters that has played the game," says Dawes' Taylor Goldsmith. "So it was a big deal for me when we decided to go on tour with Conor as the opening act as well as his band. To celebrate our worlds coming together we decided to cover one of each other’s tunes and release it as a limited 7 inch. We tried our best to make 'Easy/Lucky/Free' sound like a Dawes song and Conor did the same thing to 'Million Dollar Bill.' Happy to bring these recordings back to life."

    An expanded edition of Conor Oberst's 2016 album Ruminations, first released on vinyl for RSD Drops earlier this year, is now available on CD and digitally as well, and includes five bonus tracks, four of which are previously unreleased. The vinyl, pressed on two 140-gram LPs, includes an exclusive etching on side D. You can get it and hear it here.
