Songwriter Conor Oberst will be touring in support of a new album this year, and that tour will bring him to Fayetteville this spring.

The singer and creative force behind Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos, and member of the super-group Monsters of Folk will perform at George’s Majestic Lounge on Tuesday, May 23.

Oberst last month announced plans to release a new 17 track album, Salutations, on March 17. The new album will include full-band versions of the 10 songs from last year’s stripped down release, Ruminations , plus seven previously unreleased songs.

Phoebe Bridgers is set to open the Fayetteville show.

Tickets are $26, and go on sale at 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 24 at George’s ticketing site.
