The Decemberists Announce New Album I’ll Be Your Girl, Release “Severed”

Veteran indie-pop raconteurs The Decemberists are putting out a new album, and it’s called I’ll Be Your Girl. It’s out March 16 on Capitol Records, according to Pitchfork. The band has released a new single from the LP called “Severed,” which is an unusually electronics-heavy outing for them, driven by a synth arpeggio and an unusually processed-sounding Colin Meloy. In a statement about the album, Meloy wrote that “the songs tend to the darker, more absurdist side of things I mean, how can you blame us and features a lot of nice vintage synth work.” Listen to “Severed,” and check out the album track list below.
