"A few years ago, I started revisiting old demos that had never seen the light of day and recordings that hadn't found a home on previous albums, and I started thinking of them as the Valley of Abandoned Songs," explains Ian Felice. "At a certain point, I realized that I had a particular group of tunes that worked really well as an album, and so I shared it with Conor, along with my idea to post it online, but he immediately texted back that he loved it so much he wanted to start a new record label just to put it out."

About signing the band to his new label, Conor Oberst adds: "I first encountered the Felice Brothers in 2007 after being given some of their music by a friend. I liked it a lot, but there was something I couldn't put my finger on-singular and mysterious. An iconoclastic version of what some lazy people call "Americana". I subsequently met them and played shows together. They became some of my best friends, family, really. I put out two of their records on the label I co-owned at the time, called Team Love. Then we started to perform together with them as my backing band and made a record of mine called Salutations. Needless to say, I love this band, and when I asked that horrible question, 'Who is your favorite band?' I always answer 'The Felice Brothers.' So when Ian sent me this new collection of songs and told me they just planned to put it up on the internet, I kind of flipped out, because they were so goddamn good. And then I did something I swore I would never do again: I started a new record label. This is my third. It is called Million Stars, and I am so proud to say the new Felice Brothers album is our first release. I can't quit them. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do."
