Vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release. The Decemberists explore a new sound on their inspired eighth studio album I'll Be Your Girl. The acclaimed Portland, Oregon-based band worked with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana del Ray) and embraced influences such as Roxy Music and New Order to spark a new creative path, as evidenced on synth-driven lead single "Severed." I'll Be Your Girl is the band's first studio album since 2015's What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World. In addition to their lyrics, which often focus on historical incidents and/or folklore, The Decemberists are also well known for their eclectic live shows. Audience participation is a part of each performance, typically during encores. The band stages whimsical reenactments of sea battles and other centuries-old events, typically of regional interest, or acts out songs with members of the crowd.
