Listen to The Decemberists' New Song "Down by the Water"

New Music: The Decemberists' "Down by the Water"

I've been a fan of folky indie outfit The Decemberists for years, so I'm looking forward to their next album, The King Is Dead, to be released in January. The band are giving us all a little preview via their new track, "Down by the Water," which pairs an upbeat, lush sound with vaguely mournful lyrics (like many of their songs). Listen to Colin Meloy's romantic voice on the harmonica-heavy "Down by the Water" when you read more.
