Oberst was hospitalized in 2015 in the middle of a tour for the punk band Desaparecidos, and this album was written and recorded in the recovery from that experience. It was recorded in Omaha in just two days, with Ben Brodin as Engineer, Mike Mogis doing the mixing, and Bob Ludwig mastering.

My copy is the three sided (side 4 is an etched illustration) limited edition reissue for Record Store Day 2021, but the album originally came out in 2016.

Oberst plays piano, guitar, harmonica, and sings, all songs he wrote.
