The Decemberists accomplish every person’s life goal in the new video for “Make You Better”: They hang out on a talk show hosted by Nick Offerman.
This isn’t the bacon-and-eggs-loving Offerman we know from Parks and Rec, but one with a German accent and a giggly disposition. He has an awkward conversation with Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy before the band takes the stage for a performance bathed in colorful lights. As they perform, Offerman makes eyes at a cute producer who he fears is more into their non-mustached co-worker — don’t worry though; things turn out well for him.
The Decemberists last released an album in 2011 with The King is Dead, but are returning to the music scene with What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, out Jan. 20.
