Okkervil River frontman Will Sheff has a new project, one he’s been quietly working on for about a year. On his website, Sheff writes that he rented a room last year and that he’s been going there everyday to work on music from his new solo thing Lovestreams: “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.” And today, we get to hear the first song from the project. It’s a broody synth-rock thing, and it’s called “Shock Corridor.” Hear it below.

Sheff says that he’ll be giving the songs away rather than selling them, so expect to hear more soon.
