    Conor revealed on Sirius XM that he has indeed recorded full-band versions of all of the songs from Ruminations in addition to seven other songs. All or some combination of these will be released on a new album, called Salutations, on March 17!

  2. I loved Ruminations, so I'm excited for this even though I think the original arrangements were perfect for those songs.

    Oh helllll yes! Ruminations is cool, but it was way too minimal for me, can't wait full band versions / new songs

    I'm extremely excited that it seems like this rumor turned out to be true. Can't wait to hear these songs.

    Hah, I had heard this news on that XM station over the weekend, but then when I went online to see the exact date (I had just remembered March) there was absolutely no mention of it anywhere. I thought I was insane. This should be great, liked Ruminations a lot and I'm down for a full band version.

    Whoa! It's crazy that this was announced today. Just yesterday morning, I revisited Ruminations at my friend's recommendation. I really love the lyrics, but find the musical arrangements boring.......so it sounds like Salutations will be right up my alley.

    Ruminations was one of my favourite albums of 2016, so I'm very excited for this.

    What is the distinction between Bright Eyes and stuff just titled "Conor Oberst"? Curious


    Also Ruminations is my favorite thing he's ever done outside of MOF

    I just opened up the LP presale at work and then got distracted for a few hours and now it says "out of stock." Did you guys buy all of them?
