Conan O'Brien releasing two records. On vinyl. Featuring Frankenstein and rockabilly. Naturally.

Just as anticipation for his impending TBS talk show is beginning to ramp up, Conan O’Brien will release two records on independent label Third Man. And They Call Me Mad? will be released digitally and as a 7-inch vinyl record, the A side featuring O’Brien’s spoken word take on the story of Frankenstein, and the B side an interview with Third Man Records’ founder, Jack White. It’s available for pre-order at Third Man’s website, and will ship Aug. 24.

O’Brien recorded the album, Conan O’Brien Live at Third Man, with The Legally Prohibited Band on June 10, 2010, at Third Man Records in Nashville. Featuring rock and rockabilly, with White and 7 Nation Army playing on the song “20 Flight Rock,” the 12-inch vinyl is already available at the Third Man website.

Both recordings will reportedly be available on iTunes “early next week.”

    I think I need to hear a preview of this before I commit to anything…

      There’s a short preview of the 7″ (And They Call Me Mad?) on the Third Man website.

    I saw him live and was impressed to find what a great singer/musician he was. I will be buying for sure. the other one’s even just comedic, and I know he can do that.


    The second album has been available for pre-order for months now…Can’t wait to buy the second one though! For $5 it aint too shabby.

  • Tye-Grr

    He can do no wrong in my book. I love Conan.

    • Lay Jeno

      Well except for succeed as host of the Tonight Show.

      • har har.

  • jules

    It could be a disc of Conan farting and I’d still buy it.

  • Lay Jeno

    Lame. What a wannabe.

    • yeah, almost as bad as a “comedian” who relies on stealing other people’s bits and making his “humor” appeal to the lowest common denominator. oh wait…

      what, did you see this comment in a jaywalking bit and think it was cute?

    I didn’t buy Paris Hilton’s music and I won’t buy Conan’s. He’s a decent guitar player and a mediocre singer who wouldn’t get near a recording studio if he wasn’t famous.

    • how the hell did paris hilton get brought into this?

  • Roger C

    Conan, go away, seriously. What a moron. You killed your show just to give Andy a job. Brilliant.

    I like how he is skipping the tired old CD and going plain digital and solid vinyl.

      A while back (in another terhad), Brent asked if I had any constructive tips or advice for our users. I don’t have much to offer for the other users, but since I’m heavily involved in web development on the editorial side, I can at least offer some advice to CBG’s editorial staff in the way of some questions that would go a long way to helping you identify the strengths and weaknesses of this website.* How much revenue is being generated from your website (banner ads, etc.)? Are you monetizing other areas of your online areas (e.g., e-newsletters, podcasts, videos)?* Do you sell products from your website? If so, are revenues up or down compared to previous months/years?* Are you getting regular online reports from your web team (e.g., Omniture reports)? If not, why not?* Why do visitors come to your site? Why does your site exist, and what do you offer on your website that your visitors cannot receive from the print magazine, or from other websites?* How much traffic (page views, unique visitors, total visits) are you getting on a monthly basis? * How is this traffic trending compared to last month? How is it trending compared to last year?* What is the average amount of time a visitor spends with your website? Is this amount increasing or decreasing month over month/year over year?* What was your best month in the past year/two years?* What are your most popular pages for the past month/past year? How does this compare to previous months/years?* Who are your most popular writers/columnists/contributors to the website? How often are they posting new content? Do you have a budget or payment plan that encourages/incentivizes your top contributors to write frequently? Are you actively soliciting content from new writers as well?* Do you have areas of your website that have not been updated in many months? If so, either update them or consider phasing them out. If your print columnists are not contributing to the website, offer them incentives to do so or else shut down those online areas.* Where are your visitors coming from? Are they mostly U.S. based? What percentage of your traffic comes from overseas? Do you have a strategy to attract more traffic from overseas?* Are you familiar with other websites and what features those other sites have? Do you regularly contact other editors to learn best practices, as well as strategies on how to ensure CBGxtra’s web development is made a priority within the corporate hierarchy? * What do you do better on your website than your competitors do, and vice versa?* What are your top three priorities for the website? What would you like the website to look like six months from now? Do you have sufficient resources and staffing to make those priorities a reality?
