Since Okkervil River premiered their new song “Wake and Be Fine” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon a few weeks ago we’ve been left somewhat in the dark on the details about their new album I Am Very Far.

Today we have more information including the album cover – seen above – and the release date which is May 10th through Jagjaguwar.

You can find out more about I Am Very Far in the interesting, if a little evasive, interview with Will Sheff over at Pitchfork, where he describes dream lyrics, hanging out with his grandparents and the difficulties of eleven people playing live in the same room at the same time.

Additional to this the band have today released a new song, which will not feature on the album, called “Mermaid.” Check it out below courtesy of We All Want Someone To Shout For.

If you look around the internet hard enough you may also have the fortune to come across the equally brilliant partner to this song, “Walked Out On A Line.”
