Conor Oberst

"Common Knowledge" (video)

Conor Oberst has released a new video for his song "Common Knowledge" from Upside Down Mountain, and it finds the songwriter addressing some big life questions.

The slightly gloomy clip shows Oberst hanging out in a downtown apartment and answering questions about having children and his greatest desire. He also goes for a walk and spends some time in what, judging by the sign on the door, appears to be Nonesuch's office. Towards the end of the video, he cuts his own hair, which is probably a good thing, since he looks a little scruffy.

Watch the David Altobelli-clip below.

For Record Store Day's Black Friday event on November 28, Oberst will release a 7-inch with the unreleased songs "Standing on the Outside" and "Sugar Street."
