The highly-anticipated album, The Tree of Forgiveness, is Prine’s first collection of new material since 2005’s Grammy-winning Fair and Square.

Back in 1970, Prine was playing at the Chicago folk club The Fifth Peg when the young journalist Roger Ebert dropped in for a set. At the time, Prine was a 23-year-old mailman who had been singing his original songs every Thursday night for about two months. Ebert wrote a glowing review for the Chicago Sun- Times , essentially launching Prine’s music career. Kris Kristofferson became one of his earliest advocates; their friendship has lasted decades and they have toured together extensively over the years. In turn, Prine has invited a new generation of songwriters to open his concerts.

NEWS: Charlie Rose interviews Conor Oberst

Conor talks with Charlie Rose about songwriting, the making of Salutations, and living life. The episode features two performances, “Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out” and “Mamah Borthwick (A Sketch),” with help from Greg Farley and James Felice on vocals, violin, and accordion. Conor also had the honor of the show’s quote of the week:

If you’re an artist, that doesn’t mean you surrender your rights as a citizen. And if you have a platform to express yourself, do it if you’re compelled to.

Tonight he headlines WXPN’s Xponential Festival with Hop Along and Wilco. The European and UK leg of the tour starts August 4 with A Summer’s Tale.
