The Decemberists announce new album 'As It Ever Was, So It Will Be Again'

After the rousing response to their much-loved LP 'I'll be Your Girl' in 2018, The Decemberists have now returned to announce the details behind their next studio album, arriving later this year.

The new full-length 'As It Ever Was, So It Will Be Again' will include guest appearances from The Shins’ James Mercer and REM’s Mike Mills, is being previewed by the new 19-minute epic 'Joan In The Garden', and is set to be released on the 14th June via YABB Records (Thirty Tigers).

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Colin Meloy said, “Joan in the Garden” has been kicking around as an idea since the ‘I’ll Be Your Girl’ sessions. I got into a Joan of Arc kick after reading Lydia Yuknavitch’s beautifully batshit novel ‘The Book of Joan.’ I wanted to make my own version of Joan — but the song that came was as much about the creative process as it was about the actual woman, about angelic visitation and creative visitation and the hallucinogenic quality of both.”
