OKKERVIL RIVER Share New Video For “Call Yourself Renee”, East Coast Tour Dates This Week

Okkervil River has released the new video for “Call Yourself Renee” from their critically acclaimed album Away. The clip, directed by Bret Curry, was filmed on the road during the band’s US tour in support of the album, and follows two fictional characters in the audience during an Okkervil River concert. Curry says:

I wanted to make a video that captured the spirit of the individuals in the song’s lyrics without being too literal. Viewers can draw their own conclusions on what connects these two characters and what sort of past or future they have together. I really love this song and am grateful to Will for letting me take a swing at its visual interpretation.”

Sheff worked with an almost entirely new cast of musicians for this album, most of them coming from the jazz and avant-garde world, including members of yMusic, keyboardists Jared Samuel (Yoko Ono) and Brian Donohoe (Snarky Puppy), arranger Nathan Thatcher (Nico Muhly, Kronos Quartet), and vocalist Marissa Nadler, among others. “This record was me taking my life back to zero and starting to add it all back up again, one plus one plus one,” says Sheff.

The band will wrap up a US tour this week with a homecoming show at Webster Hall in New York on Thursday night, before heading to Europe later this month.
