Okkervil River - Don't Move Back To LA

“Don’t Move Back To LA” is a breezy track, carried along by a strong backbeat. Sheff says simply that, "a bunch of my best friends all moved back to LA from New York around the same time and I was really sad about it, so I wrote a song about how I didn't want them to leave. I'm specifically referring to them through some of the nicknames in the song."

The new Okkervil River record In The Rainbow Rain is out.... Recorded on the heels of the Awayworld tour, Will Sheff kept the same group of players together and entered the studio energized, recording many of the tracks live. Mixed by Shawn Everett in Los Angeles (Alabama Shakes, War on Drugs), it is a massive sounding Okkervil River record.
