Conor Oberst appears on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast this week. He discusses Bright Eyes, the rape accusations from last year, and a variety of other topics.

Below is a statement from Conor Oberst accepting the apology recently offered by the woman who falsely accused him of raping her.
I have accepted Joanie Faircloth’s apology and retraction to clear my name. This has been extremely difficult and stressful for me personally and for those I love. I’m appreciative of the family, friends, fans, and business partners who supported me throughout this and look forward to happier times as we all move forward with our lives.

Joanie Faircloth has recanted her accusations against Conor Oberst.
Joanie Faircloth, who alleged that Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst had sexually assaulted her in the comments of an XOJane article, has now admitted that she made the whole story up. In February, Oberst had filed a libel lawsuit against her, calling her accusations "absolutely, unequivocally false." Now Faircloth is asking for forgiveness for what she wrote.

Omaha.com has posted a new interview with Conor Oberst -- amongst it is the news that Desaparecidos is working on a new album that hopefully will be out next year.
Desaparecidos is hard at work on a new album. Hopefully it'll be out next year. The other projects there are no immediate plans but I wouldn't be surprised. You know how sentimental I am.
