Okkervil River Annouce New Album

Texan band Okkervil River have annouced that they will be releasing a new album titled I Am Very Far on May 10th, their first solo release since 2008’s The Stage Names. Very little is known about the album other than the title, and Will Schaff’s artwork, however a new single Mermaid will be released in Febuary.

The band performed new track Wake And Be Fine on Jimmy Fallon recently, with A.C Newman, and thankfully, Will Sheff and the band are at their literate and deranged best.

I know it’s only January, but I have a feeling 2011 is going to be an awesome year for music.
