The Decemberists – Severed


Keith Coes here with my DJ pick of the week. I am thrilled The Decemberists have announced their eighth studio album,I’ll Be Your Girl, out March 16 via Capitol Records. I am digging the lead single “Severed.”

When you’ve been a band for 17 years, inevitably there are habits you fall into,” said Colin Meloy in a statement. “So our ambition this time was really just to get out of our comfort zone. That’s what prompted working with a different producer and using a different studio. We wanted to free ourselves from old patterns and give ourselves permission to try something different.” I’ll Be Your Girl is the follow-up to 2015’s What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World. Listen to “Severed” below and let us know what you think!

Don’t miss your chance to see The Decemberists live at Ryman Auditorium April 13 and 14.

New album ‘I’ll Be Your Girl’ available March 16:
