M. Ward, Jim James, & Conor Oberst to release album as Monsters of Folk

The big news today is, of course, the official word that tour buddies Conor Oberst & Mike Mogis (of Bright Eyes), Jim James (of My Morning Jacket), and M. Ward (of M. Ward and She & Him) are teaming up for an album of all new collaborative, original material. Dubbed the Monsters of Folk, the “band” will release a 15 song self-titled album in September through Shangri-La. Let’s hope it’s better than Outer South, Evil Urges, and Hold Time. The above video is a cover of Dylan’s “Girl From the North Country” recorded live from an Austin City Limits broadcast from a few years ago.
