The King Is Dead is the name of the album, and no, it’s not a cross-dressing tribute to The
Smiths: that’s what the Decemberists are calling their forthcoming album, set
for Jan. 18 release on Capitol. Yes, indeed, that’s the one featuring Peter
Buck guesting, as previously noted way back in June.


Full tracklisting is below.


You can get a free download of new song “Down by the Water” – and no,
that’s neither a tribute to PJ Harvey or Neil Young – at the band’s website.
