Aw shucks, Jenny Lewis and Conor Oberst are just the best. Noisey got them together for a charming one-on-one interview (which turns out more like a casual conversation) and the pair admitted to recording a never-before-heard album back in 2003.
The album was adorkably called Blood on the 4-Tracks and featured contributions from the Postal Service’s Jimmy Tamborello and Bright Eyes’ Nate Walcott. It was recorded out in Jenny Lewis’ Los Angeles apartment in Silver Lake and featured a song that would become Bright Eyes’ “Gold Mine Gutted” (which appeared on 2005’s Digital Ash in a Digital Urn).
Lewis still has the recordings, so will the secret album ever be released?
“I’d be into it as long as it’s some sort of edible seven-inch,” Oberst says. “We can talk to Jack [White] about making us an edible.”
“We want a Fruit Roll-Up 7-inch,” Lewis specifies.
