The Decemberists have begun rolling their gigantic marketing ball down hill. Last week, lead singer Colin Meloy performed on the side of a New York City street in order to debut some of the music from the new album.
This coming Monday some new information will be released as well. What we know right now is that a short teaser for what appears to be a music video was put up on Friday, Oct. 31. Make sure to keep an eye on The Decemberists and Colin Meloy’s social media on Monday afternoon. It is easy to suspect that the full music video will be released then.
The new Decemberists song is entitled “Make You Better” and is being released from their new album, What a Beautiful World, What a Terrible World.
According to the cover artwork from What a Beautiful World, What a Terrible World that Colin performed his set in front of, the new album will be released on Jan. 20, 2015.
