Subscribe to Conor Oberst alerts

Rocker Conor Oberst has brushed off rumours Bright Eyes are set to split.
Fans of the American indie rockers were left aghast when Oberst told Rolling Stone, "It does feel like it needs to stop at some point. I'd like to clean it up, lock the door, say goodbye."
But Oberst insists his remarks were misconstrued, and he is keen for the band to release new music and tour again in the future.
He tells, "We don't have any immediate plans, I guess, after this year. (What I said) sounded pretty final, but I don't remember the quote - you can look it up. I think I meant it that day...
"I don't think (this is our last tour)... We don't really take anything off the table."
Bandmate Mike Mogis adds, "Hopefully we'll come back over (to Europe), hopefully we'll make another record."
