Conor

Conor Oberst's new album is titled Upside Down Mountain and it's out on Nonesuch on May 20. The album was produced by Jonathan Wilson and features guest vocals from First Aid Kit. The first single is "Hundreds of Ways," which will be out as a 7" on Record Store Day and you can stream it right now, below.

Around the time of the album's release Oberst will begin his summer tour which currently wraps up in NYC at Central Park Summerstage on July 29 (Rumsey Playfield). No word on when tickets go on sale for the Summerstage show but you can keep checking Ticketmaster. Early in the tour, Oberst will be in the NY area for a show at Long Island's The Space at Westbury on May 22. No word on tickets for that show either.

UPDATE: Tickets for both NYC-area shows go on sale Friday (2/14) at noon and Dawes open both shows.

Speaking of, Jonathan Wilson is in NYC this week: Bowery Ballroom on 2/12 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on 2/14Tickets  for both are still available.

The story seemed sketchy to begin with, but that fact he refuses to address it seems pretty shady...

Actually I think he did address it with a statement and consideration of legal action.

And the accusation came from Anonymous, so could be anyone of the commenters here on BV I guess.

I hope they add another NYC show that isn't in the park or LI. Also, he did respond, pretty strongly:

Suck it up and go to Westbury if you don't like Central Park. You nerds act like a train ride to LI is the end of the world. Wayyyy smaller venue.

Going to LI is actually a pain the ass on a wednesday night. If the show ends at 11, I probably won't get home till 1 in the morning. I'm too old for that shit.

That was his publicist, conor himself has said nothing.

The picture is kind of funny, it's true.
However, the song is good. The rape jokes are uninspired and unhelpful.

Great song.

I hope everyone making rape jokes gets raped themselves.

I've never been into Bright Eyes but the whole story does pretty much seem like bullshit at this point.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2014 3:41 PM

Stop with all of the rape jokes unless you want Conor's libel attorney paying you a visit.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2014 3:50 PM

He addressed the allegations with Rolling Stone last week."I don't know if it makes me an asshole to not want to talk to my fans. But I'm not going to sit on a fucking computer and try to talk to some fucking 16-year-old in wherever-the-fuck."

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2014 4:00 PM

^ that really had no relation.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2014 4:11 PM

^^ Yes, it does address the allegation as being complete bullshit without actually acknowleding said bullshit rumor. Him saying he does'nt give a shit about some fucking anonymous 16-year old "chick" on the internet cannot address this allegation anly clearer.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2014 4:56 PM

^ ...except for the fact it doesn't even remotely address the allegation. Thinking is so hard.

Rapist piece of shit

Posted by Matt | February 11, 2014 5:36 PM

I refuse to listen to Oberst, and boycott labels who puts on his shows or releases his music—until he explains his disgusting allegations, instead of his vile slut shaming that he passes off as an excuse.

Posted by Allyssa T. | February 11, 2014 5:50 PM

Dawes aren't just opening, they're also his backing band for these shows.

Posted by Dawes | February 11, 2014 6:00 PM

Boycotting Oberst's music sounds like a good idea, regardless of whether the allegations are true or not.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2014 6:03 PM

I'm surprised his bird chested faggot was capable of raping anyone. That cunt probably gets raped by gusts of wind and gravity too.

Posted by Oglasi Crna Gora | February 11, 2014 6:30 PM

He is a handsome man and all of the BV commentators are clearly jealous of his dashing looks and accomplished music.

See how handsome he is after he rapes you.

I heard that he doesn't have genitals, so something isn't adding up.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2014 7:14 PM

he seems to be dismissing his accuser based on age and for being from a non-central geographic location. no rapist has ever done ithat in the history of rape, ever, not once in the whole span of recorded time, so it must be bullshit. I mean, duh, she's sixteen! How could someone that young possible tell the truth? right? right? right.

Some of the comments on this site are absolutely disgusting. An anonymous internet rape claim from a decade ago by some crazed Bright Eyes fan has been proven to be a hoax. It seems that this story will haunt Oberst's career for some time which is truly, truly sad. Isaac Brock is steal dealing with the same type of shit a decade later.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2014 7:34 PM

I heard that he'll spit in your bunghole if you pay him enough.

Luckily these cretins in BV don't represent the popular opinion of these allegations. These are just people who think they can sway people's thoughts with mindless anonymous comments but they really are very small in the eyes of the world..however big they think they are in their pathetic minds.
