Okkervil River Detail New Album In the Rainbow Rain

Okkervil River will release their new studio album, In the Rainbow Rain, on April 27 via ATO Records. The new effort follows up the band’s 2016 record Away.

“I wanted to make a record where a sense of kindness felt encoded into the music,” Okkervil frontman Will Sheff says of the new album’s brighter feel. The band has also shared the first single from the album, “Don’t Move Back to L.A.,” which Sheff says was written as a plea to his friends.

“A bunch of my best friends all moved to LA and I was really sad about it so I wrote a song about how I didn’t want them to leave,” he says of the tune. “I think the song is also kind of about my own deep and long-held desire to get the hell out of New York City.”
