Conor Oberst Drops Double A-Side Single No One Changes/The Rockaways

Wednesday, 07 November 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Conor Oberst has dropped a double a-side single.

No One Changes and The Rockaways have been posted to the singer-songwriter's Bandcamp page, where you can also pick up the 7". The former features the Bright Eyes mastermind accompanying himself on piano, while the latter has Nathaniel Walcott on the keyboard and Oberst on guitar.

The songs follows LAX, which came out in late October. The track featured backing vocals from Phoebe Bridgers and was produced by Simone Felice (of the Felice Brothers) as part of Amazon Music's Produced By series. Oberst's last album, meanwhile, was 2017's 'Salutations', a companion piece to his 2016 LP ‘Ruminations’.

Both new tracks find Oberst in a reflective mood, and on No One Changes his vocal delivery is exasperated, echoing the frustration hinted at in its title. “Nobody’s gonna change, nobody ever does. Nobody’s gonna change, nobody’s changing for you," he sings. "And I’m never going to do what you want me to.” The Rockaways, meanwhile, utilises a softer approach to get nostalgic.
