Okkervil River Apr 27, 2018 So this is it - 'In the Rainbow Rain' is out everywhere today. I’m beside myself with excitement now that this album is out in the universe. This new record reminds me both of my favorite pop music Okkervil River has made in the past and I think it also sounds unlike so much of our stuff that came before it. I think about it and I get so excited. The record’s become completely wrapped up in my life and I’m excited and a little emotional to finally let it go with the hope it can become a small part of yours. It’s a crazy music business - if you’re considering buying the record you should consider buying it in its first week because that’s when the cold unfeeling eye of The Industry is paying the most attention. I’d recommend vinyl but I also think our CD came out looking really great in its own right. Streaming is fine too, though mp3s pay more to artists (and it just so happens that our vinyl edition comes with an mp3 download code...) But please do spread the word far and wide if you can. And I also have to tell you that I can’t wait to see you all on tour. This record was written and arranged by a live band with an eye to being played live, and we’re really excited to rock it in your town and also play some older songs we haven’t played in a long long while if ever. I promise we’ll make every show special and make it real onstage every night. On an even more personal note, thanks for caring about the records I’ve made and listening deeply and insightfully to the music and following the band this 20 years and letting me know when the music’s meant something to you. I feel so lucky I get to do this, and it’s because of you. So thank you for being you. - Will
