Adored Mailing List Recipients,
On the eve of the first show of the final leg of the Popes of Pendarvia World Tour, we would like to announce the pre-order for The Decemberists’ brand-new iTunes Session. The 8-song set features tracks spanning across much of the band’s career, plus two previously unrecorded covers: Leonard Cohen’s “Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye” and one we’ve been performing recently, Fruit Bats’ “When U Love Somebody.” The pre-order is now underway at iTunes. Each pre-order comes with an immediate download of “June Hymn,” which is also streaming on our Ping page here. The complete EP will be available on August 2.
Here’s the track listing:
1. Calamity Song
2. Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye
3. Shankill Butchers
4. June Hymn
5. This Is Why We Fight
7. The Hazards of Love 4 (The Drowned)
8. When U Love Somebody
