Conor Oberst @ Brilliant Corners in 2012 (more by Zach Pollack)

Conor Oberst is set to release his new album, Upside Down Mountain, on May 20 via Nonesuch. Today, he's shared the album's lead single "Hundreds of Ways," which will also hit stores on its own as a Record Store Day 7". It begins like many Oberst tunes, but gets very David Byrne-like around 01:00. You can take a listen to the song at the bottom of this post. The LP was produced by Jonathan Wilson and includes guest vocals from First Aid Kit.

Conor will also be embarking on a spring North American tour in support of his forthcoming LP. Dawes will open all dates, including Conor's two-night stand at Metro on May 29 & 30. Tickets for both nights go on sale this Friday (2/14) at noon CST.

All Conor Oberst dates and a stream of "Hundreds of Ways" lie after the jump...
