Will Sheff's long-running project Okkervil River released their ninth studio album at the end of April called In the Rainbow Rain. KEXP's song of the day is the album's second single "Pulled Up the Ribbon." The song comes accompanied by a video by Christopher Good that features the band on a beach dressed in clothes from the 1700s. Good said this about the video: "It's such a sweeping, rousing, almost elemental-sounding track. I immediately thought of the rock beach in Rockport, Massachusetts' Halibut Point State Park as an appropriately evocative backdrop and then from there just let my mind wander!" In the Rainbow Rain is out now via ATO. Okkervil River will play Neumos on Monday, June 4.
