Okkervil River lead man Will Sheff has recently revealed exciting news to fans. While fans cannot expect an Okkervil River release soon, they can expect some new material from Will Sheff’s solo project, Lovestreams.

Sheff wrote about the new project on this blog:

In the early part of last year I started renting a room down in a basement a couple neighborhoods over from my apartment in Brooklyn and I started going in and working every day of the week there, just shutting the door and writing until evening. I decided to do a project there I’d wanted to do for years and years, which is to make an album by myself and for myself, an album that doesn’t owe anything to music I made before. When I finished the album I decided I’d give some the songs away for free since it cost almost nothing to make. So here’s one of the songs, over here on this site. The name of the project is Lovestreams.

A release date for the project is not known just yet, but fans can stay updated via the Lovestreams blog.

Sheff cuts away from the expected singer-songwriter type songs with the first song released. Instead of acoustic, “Shock Corridor” leans more to the electronic side of things with it’s layers of synths and effects. Check out the track below.
