While eating lunch and trying to get all my daily distractions out of the way, I stumbled across the recently released video for “Wake and Be Fine,” a single off of the upcoming release I Am Very Far (Due out May 10). When it was done, I immediately pre-ordered the album. The lyrics are, as usual, incredibly literate and poetic, and the music behind them is a lot richer and quite a bit more “rock-y” than anything else I’ve heard from Okkervil River. I’m really, really excited about hearing the rest of the album.

Check out the video below.
