Next week The Decemberists will release a new EP titled Long Live The King. It is composed of outtakes from The King Is Dead, the album that the band released this past January.
Right now songs from the EP are streaming on various sites. Head to Vulture to hear a track called “Foregone”, head to Rolling Stone for “Burying Davy” and finally, head to Paste for “E. Watson”. The EP also contains the bands Grateful Dead cover of “Row Jimmy” that we heard a little while back.
In more important news, the band’s very own Jenny Conlee is currently in remission against breast cancer. I want to just take a moment to congratulate Jenny. Here’s to many more years of great health!
