In His Words: "The songs [on new album 'The People's Key'] were written all over the course of the last year and a half. When I started writing the first few songs, I didn't know what direction the record was going to take. Once the first three or four songs were written, I started to see the template emerge of what was going to become the record." -- Conor Oberst
