The Decemberists release lyric video for 'The Wrong Year'

Posted on


After four years without putting out new music, Oregon-bred The Decemberists are back: They just released a lyric video for new track “The Wrong Year” that looks like something straight out of Portlandia—birds included.

“The Wrong Year” is the third song released off their upcoming album, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World. Previously released tracks include “Lake Song” and “Make You Better,” a song with a music video featuring Parks and Recreation‘s Nick Offerman.

The Decemberists’ last record was 2011’s The King is Dead, which was a critical hit—and it nabbed a Grammy nomination for its first single, “Down By the Water.”

What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World comes out Jan. 20.
