Conor and the boys are back for a second time with their newest upcoming release Outer South due out next month on Merge. Yes, there has been a few complaints that the new Conor project isn’t really reflective of Bright Eyes, but who said it had to be? Oberst is more poetic and honest than ever…and not to mention there is a bit more ‘pep in his step’ if you will. The band just released a new single on their site titled ‘Slowly (Oh So Slowly)’ which continues with the spirit of their first record.

On a Conor Oberst note, The Killers have just covered a version of Bright Eyes‘ Cassadega. Right now you can only view it on Youtube. Its a really interesting take on the song. It will appear on their Spaceman EP due out next month on Island.
