A few days after releasing their kitschy “Make You Butter” — er, “Make You Better” — video, the Decemberists visited Conan last night to perform the lead single from their upcoming album, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World. Led by the warbling Colin Meloy, the Portland band sailed through the live track with the supportive ease that only old friends could achieve. Watch their performance above, and grab What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World on January 20 via Capitol Records.
