Okkervil River’s ‘I Am Very Far’ Details Announced

    Okkervil River’s seventh studio album, I Am Very Far, is to be released via their long-time label Jagjaguwar on May 10. Instead of their usual mode of operation (barricading themselves inside a studio until the album is done), Will Sheff and co. have decided this time around to record in various places, including Austin, New York and Connecticut. The eleven new songs feature orchestras, horn sections, boombox solos and cabinet-throwing, all of which was designed, according to Sheff, to “push my brain to places it didn’t want to go.”
