Here we are, in the final days of the YOUR GIRL/YOUR GHOST tour, the release of our 8th record, I’ll Be Your Girl, a bare glimmer in the fogged rear-view mirror of time. Perhaps other bands would be content to rest on the laurels of another successful record released, another romp about the globe put to bed — BUT NOT THE DECEMBERISTS. No, folks, we have one last thing we’d like to impart to you before we go into our deserved siesta: We are announcing the Traveling On EP!
This little bugger is a sharp twenty-one minutes of songs that were recorded during the I’ll Be Your Girl sessions but never quite found a home on the album those sessions produced. What’s the tracklisting, you ask? Look no further:
1. Down On The Knuckle
2. I Will Not Say Your Name
3. Tripping Along (Full Band Version)
4. Midlist Author
5. Traveling On
This EP will be out on compact disc
, 10” vinyl
and, as is the mode,
digital bits via your preferred streaming service. However, if you order it now via the Decemberists shop
, you can opt to receive a bespoke t-shirt as well. Vinyl copies
will include a coupon for a digital download.
PLUS: if you order the EP through our web shop
, you’ll INSTANTLY have access to digital files of two songs — “Traveling On” and “Tripping Along (Full Band Version).”
