The Decemberists New Album

The Decemberists are slated to release their new album, “The King Is Dead,” on January 18th. I just took a first listen and couldn’t help but think that this is going to be one of those albums that sounds strange at first but will slowly grow on you until it’s the only thing you can listen to.

To make things even more interesting, the band decided to commission the very talented (and attractive) photographer, Autumn de Wilde, to document the band as they were recording the album…. All the photographs where taken with a Poloroid. 2500 of them. The result is 2500 original and one of a kind little treasures. Why is this so interesting? Because the band is giving each Poloroid away to the first 2500 people who purchase the box set. If you are a big fan, it’s totally worth it. You get a limit edition Poloriod, a 72 page hardcover book, a video documenting the making of the album, and video downloads. Oh yeah, and the album, all presented in a linen wrapped clamshell box with foil-stamped cover. It’s totally rad. Check out the project and preorder the box-set before it runs out.
