Bright Eyes frontman releases a freewheeling, genre-jumping single from his forthcoming solo album.

A rich country-infused, Caribbean-splashed folk-rock track, “Hundreds of Ways” is the first single off Conor Oberst’s forthcoming album Upside Down Mountain, which will drop on May 20. As it moves and breaks, the genre-jumping gem is deeply wordy, yet incredibly driving. In support of the new record, he hits the road in May. According to Oberst’s website, Dawes will open and act as his backing band during the tour. The dates are below.

All in all, it was three and a half hours that demanded your attention.


If you happened to miss any of the night’s performances, PopMatters has you covered. Here are videos of what went down and how great it was (or wasn’t), arranged in order from best to worst.
