James, Ward, Oberst due to hit studio?

Post Author:

New studio project tentatively slated between touring buds Conor Oberst, Jim James and M. Ward.

Time's booked for the trio in the studio Oberst and producer/collaborater Mike Mogis recently finished building in Omaha. The collaboration wouldn't be the first for the guys, who had so much team love for each other they couldn't seem to stay off each other's sets when touring together. This will, however, be the first time the artists duke out their creative kicks in the measured control of a studio space. We'll be waiting to see what comes of it.

Don't try holding your breath, it's not happening until Oberst's done with his next six months of touring.

If you have some sort of connections you might still be able to hear Bright Eyes' six-piece touring outfit play in support of his upcoming album, “Cassadaga”, which hits shelves in April and proves Oberst a man-child more political and outward-looking, not to mention a bit more slick Nashville with his production values.
