Published Mar 09, 2011Stoking anticipation for their upcoming album, I Am Very Far, emotive folk rockers Okkervil River debuted "Mermaid" on twelve-inch vinyl last month. Now, they're showing us more of the new album by leaking "Wake and Be Fine."
Some fans may remember when the Okkers debuted the song on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in January. The studio version maintains the country-tinged feel, but ups the ante with studio sheen and a fuller sound. An Okkervil River waltz could have been a certified snoozer, but they've instead pulled out an exciting peek at the album to come.
