Watch Conor Oberst's Uplifting 'Hundreds of Ways' Performance on 'Letterman'

'Upside Down Mountain' victory lap continues on 'The Late Show'

Colin Joyce

During Conor Oberst's lengthy tour in support of Upside Down Mountain, he's made a couple of TV appearances, but Monday he took to the most famous stage in late night television for a fragile performance of "Hundreds of Ways." Backed by the rollicking roots-rockers in Dawes, Oberst offered The Late Show With David Letterman a cracked, but ultimately uplifting rendition of the defiant cut from one of SPIN's Best Albums of 2013 So Far. Watch the performance above, and if you're in need of more from the Nebraska-born songwriter, read SPIN's recent cover story or take a critical look at his discography.
