Travel with me to the recent past– yesterday, to be exact. Way back then, we published a story titled “Conor Oberst/Jim James/M. Ward Album Finally Coming Out?” Well, that question has been answered.  And the answer is yes (thank god).

The Monsters of Folk supergroup– which also features producer/Bright Eyes member Mike Mogis– release their self-titled debut on September 22 via Shangri-La in North America, Rough Trade in Europe, Spunk in Australia, and P-Vine in Japan. A press release says so and everything.

According to the release, “all four members play every instrument on the album” and the music ranges from “road-worn” to “intimate” to “sun-soaked.” The sometime tourmates recorded the LP in Malibu, California and Omaha, Nebraska over a two-year period between other projects. Track titles include “Whole Lotta Losin'” (Zeppelin tribute?), “Temazcal” (named after an ancient sauna), and “Losin Yo Head” (“Yo”!). The rest of the song names are below:
