New: The Decemberists “The Rake’s Song”


The Decemberists have released “The Rake’s Song,” a new song from their upcoming full length, The Hazards of Love.

This once’s got a bit of a punch to it and I swear when the “ALRIGHT” back up vocals hit the song it reminds of somewhere between Silversun Pickups and The Arcade Fire.

The bands says to “Share it with your friends! Post it as your Facebook update! Play it for your grandmother!” so I’ve included it here for you, my friends, to download. I’ll probably get a notice to take it down from someone, but hey, mixed signals are fun.

PS: Colin Meloy is on Twitter. So is donewaiting.
