Listen to Will Sheff of Okkervil River's New Song "Shock Corridor"

According to his website, Okkervil River vocalist Will Sheff spent most of his time last year experimenting with an exceptionally different sound on his solo project Lovesounds.

Trading his guitars for a mixture of synthesizers, Sheff released the first single “Shock Corridor” from his electro-pop solo project. A full album is planned to be released at a later date.

Sheff released this statement about his solo project on his website:
“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.”
