Okkervil River – “Okkervil River R.I.P.” Video

Last month, Okkervil River released the fatalistic “R.I.P. Okkervil River,” a pre-cursor to the folk band’s upcoming new album Away. Today, it gets an elaborate video treatment that was written and directed by Will Sheff himself. It a winding narrative that stars Tim Blake Nelson (who you may recognize from O Brother Where Art Thou?, Holes, or, more recently, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) as a priest who presides over Sheff’s funeral. Watch below.

Away is out 9/9 via ATO.
