Conor Oberst Releases Free Documentary Film


Before Omaha indie boy wonder Conor Oberst releases Outer South, his second album with the Mystic Valley Band (out May 5), he will drop a behind-the-scenes film (out April 15), which follows him and his band over the past 18 months. The best part? It’s totally free!

One of My Kind was directed by Oberst’s guitar-tech, Phil Schaffart, and follows the group from the recording of their debut in Tepoztlán, Mexico, to the end of their tour at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, TX, where the six-piece tracked the bulk of Outer South. It will be available as a free stream or HD download, courtesy of social networking/charity website Causecast. Fans are urged to donate to one of Causecast’s numerous charities. The 60-minute doc will also be hosted on and, as well as the singer/songwriter’s U.S. label Merge and U.K. label Wichita.

Outtakes and live acoustic performances from One of My Kind will be available via Causecast partner sites, The Huffington Post, and MySpace.

Check out the film’s trailer below.
