After dropping a few songs off of it, the new Okkervil River album In The Rainbow Rain is here to stream in full. It's got some of their folkiest music yet, but also some of their most electronic music yet, and as we heard at SXSW, there's a song with lyrics about Ray Davies and a guitar solo that uses the vocal melody from The Kinks' "Waterloo Sunset." The whole album is worth hearing, and you can stream it on NPR. It officially comes out 4/27 via ATO.

Okkervil's tour includes an intimate release show in Brooklyn at Rough Trade (4/27) the day the album comes out. That show is sold out, but you can win tickets.

Before the tour begins, frontman Will Sheff is doing an in-store at Strand Book Store in NYC on April 21. Will also plays Wesley Stace's Cabinet of Wonders at City Winery NYC on May 9 with Bird of Youth, Dave Hill, Steve Kistulentz, Anais Mitchell, Lydia Loveless, Carla Rhodes, and more.
