New The Decemberists Album, I’ll Be Your Girl, In March

The Decemberists did quite well to gain attention back in 2005 with the release of their third album, Picaresque.  But it was their sophomore issue, Her Majesty The Decemberists that caught the attention of first adopters.  By the time of The Crane Wife (2006), they were well-known. Over the course of their continued career, they released a strong set of albums, EPs, and singles issues. In the middle of all that, they even took a needed break. And here we are in 2018, and The Decemberists are about to give us a new album.

On March 16, Capitol Records (Rough Trade in EU) will deliver The Decemberists‘ latest, I’ll Be Your Girl. The new album contains eleven new tracks. You can hear a cut off the new album, “Severed”, below in the video provided. This new album is scheduled for CD, DD, and vinyl LP.

There are plans to create and release a Deluxe Edition of I’ll Be Your Girl, due for a later date. It’s being called I’ll Be Your Girl: The Exploded Edition.

The Decemberists have a large scale tour for the US and some overseas dates. check your usual place for details.

TAPSheet: Release Notes – November 20, 2014 (US Report)

We are apparently in our annual industry slowdown, where the labels hang their hats on the albums already announced, and sit in boardrooms to discuss the potential upcoming year’s packages. News comes trickling down. Not a pretty sight. But we’re used to it. So, while we may be a bit truncated in available news, we do try to make up the difference in other things. Long time readers already know what I’m talking about. And so it goes…

Capitol Records will release the next The Decemberists album, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World, on January 20 of 2015. The title will be issued in CD, LP, and DD formats.

Sleater-Kinney will release new music with their upcoming title, No Cities To Love. The new album, which will feature Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss, will be released in several formats that include CD, LP, a limited edition white vinyl 2LP set, and DD. The vinyl sets will include download cards for the DD versions of the songs. No Cities To Love is expected on January 20 via Sub-Pop Records. The label will release the new album internationally on January 19.

Rounder Records will release the new Blackberry Smoke album, Holding All The Roses, on February 10 on CD, LP, and DD. This is their latest since 2012’s The Whippoorwill. If you have never heard of Blackberry Smoke, well, shades of the ’70s on ya. They bear an uncanny resemblance to the style produced by ’70s era, California-based Rock and Roll, as well as the classic southern sounds. Think Eagles, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and go from there.

Hostess Entertainment will release new Belle And Sebastian music with their upcoming Girls in Peacetime Want To Dance, scheduling the set for January 20. It’s planned for CD, DD, and a Limited Edition vinyl LP set.

If you missed our Deep PurpleMade in Europe post from yesterday, a recap for you: Early in 2015, Universal will release a remixed Box set of Made in Europe (1976) featuring all of the shows, as well as a documentary. We’ll keep you posted with any updates on that set.

Suzanne Vega will have her Live At The Speakeasy (1985), a radio broadcast show, made available on CD, scheduled for January 13.

While The Waterboys are essentially Mike Scott, and Steve Wickham (mainly Mike Scott), it is still an interesting event to have a new recording by the band whenever they release one. On January 19, The Waterboys will release Modern Blues, scheduled for CD, LP, and DD. Like Simple Minds, what this band produces is usually very listenable and equally enjoyable.
