Conor Oberst’s latest solo album, Ruminations (2016, Nonesuch), continues to get rave reviews from press. Paste released its review this morning, giving the album a massive 8.6 rating.

Also this morning, Warner Bros. and its affiliate labels announced some Black Friday offerings. Among them, a limited edition Black Friday-exclusive of  “Afterthought” b/w “Tachycardia” 7-inch black vinyl by Conor Oberst. The recording features a new full-band recording of the Ruminations track “Tachycardia,” paired with “Afterthought,” an unreleased track from the Ruminations recording sessions and pressed at Record Industry.

Black Friday is Nov. 25, in case you haven’t already marked it on your calendar. I have a feeling we’ll be hearing a lot more about Black Friday releases in the coming weeks…
