Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst confirmed the formation of their new project Better Oblivion Community Center. The duo released their self-titled debut album and held their first live performance on last night’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Released by Dead Oceans, Better Oblivion Community Center features Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner on two songs and drummer Carla Azar on five of the 10 tracks. Dawes bassist Wylie Gelber and drummer Griffin Goldsmith appear on the other five songs. Additional contributors include Christian Lee Hutson on guitar and Anna Butterss on bass. Bridgers played baritone guitar and shared vocals with Oberst who also played piano.

Better Oblivion Community Center’s debut live performance occurred on last night’s Late Show. Backed by a touring band composed of Hutson, bassist Emily Retsas and drummer Elizabeth Goodfellow, Bridgers and Oberst were also joined by Zinner on the single “Dylan Thomas.” The group will appear this weekend on CBS This Morning Saturday Sessions. Tour dates are expected to be announced at a later date. Watch the Late Show performance and stream the surprise new album below:
