It’s been a Decemberists-heavy December, as the Portland folk group shared yet another song from their upcoming seventh album, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World earlier this morning. “The Wrong Year” is in many ways similar to the two songs that preceded it, as the pleasantly twangy new tune shares the same sense of earnestness and accessibility present in both “Lake Song” and also “Make You Better.” Watch the fanciful faux-paper puppeteering in the lyric video above, and look for the Decemberists’ new album on January 20.
