Conan releasing two albums, one of them based on “Frankenstein”

Pin it

Conan O'Brien

We announced Conan's first unconfirmed album several weeks back when he dropped in on Jack White's music label/ performance space Third Man Records to play an impromptu blues show. But at that point the "live album" was just hearsay.

Now it's official: Conan O'Brien Live at Third Man is not only a go, but a vinyl-only release. In addition to the 12-inch live album available for pre-order exclusively at Third Man Records, Conan is also putting out a 7-inch "improvised spoken word record inspired by the legend of Frankenstein." Yes, all of those things. Apparently the A-side is Conan's modern interpretation of the Mary Shelley horror classic FrFFgf while the B-side features Conan chatting with Jack White. (Thankfully, it will be available for download as well.) Think of it not as a shtick-y record release but as the highest form of performance art; even if vinyl is experiencing a comeback, no one buys monster-themed 7-inches anymore.
