Singer-songwriter Conor Oberst has announced that his new album ‘Salutations’ will be released on March 17 via Nonesuch Records.
The album will be a full-band companion piece to 2016’s ‘Ruminations’, which was recorded entirely solo. It will feature reworkings of the songs with full-band arrangements. According to Oberst, this is how the songs were initially intended to be recorded. The backing band will consist of The Felice Brothers and veteran drummer Jim Keltner (Neil Young, Jackson Browne, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, John Lennon).
