First Listen: The Decemberists – The King is Dead

One of the albums I’m most looking forward to in 2011 – The Decemberists’ The King is Dead – comes out on January 18th.  But thanks to NPR’s First Listen series, you can now hear the whole thing in its entirety for free on their site.  The album will be available until Jan. 18th, and I heartily recommend you check it out.

Go here to hear The King is Dead, now!

    1. I’m really enjoying it, too! Honestly, if I didn’t know any better, the first twenty-five seconds of that second track would make me believe that there’s an R.E.M. b-side I missed somewhere… 🙂
