Conor Oberst performed seven songs from his forthcoming album, Upside Down Mountain, live at the Greene Space in NYC last Wednesday night as part of Gigstock, a mini festival from WNYC's Soundcheck. You can watch Oberst's performance here. "If the songs he played at Gigstock are any indication," says CMJ, "Upside Down Mountain is going to be a hell of a record."
Conor Oberst, whose new album, Upside Down Mountain, is due out on Nonesuch Records on May 19, performed seven songs from the album live at the Greene Space in New York City last Wednesday night, April 10, on a double bill with James Vincent McMorrow as part of Gigstock, a mini festival from WNYC's Soundcheck. You can watch Oberst's performance of those new songs—"Time Forgot," "Double Life," "Night at Lake Unknown," "Lonely at the Top" "Hundreds of Ways," "You Are Your Mother’s Child," and "Common Knowledge"—below.
"Oberst recorded Upside Down Mountain, his ninth solo effort, in Nashville," says Rolling Stone's Miriam Coleman in a re-cap of Wednesday's performance, "and the country influence shines through in the songwriting as well as the slide-glossed arrangements."
"If the songs he played at Gigstock are any indication," says CMJ's Marie Scarsella, "Upside Down Mountain is going to be a hell of a record."
Upside Down Mountain is available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store with an exclusive print featuring the album art, or via iTunes, both with an instant download of the tracks "Hundreds of Ways" and "Governor’s Ball." Oberst kicks off the first leg of a world tour in support of the new album on May 8 with special guests Dawes.
