The DECEMBERISTS – ” I’ll Be Your Girl ” Box Set

The Decemberists  have shared the second single from their forthcoming eighth studio album, I’ll Be Your Girl, out on March 16th via Capitol Records.

Their first single, “Severed,” saw the band taking on a radical new electronic, synth-pop sound as they name dropped unexpected influences like Roxy Music, New Order and Depeche Mode, and they even said it started as a punk song. Synths follow the band into their new single “Once In My Life” though the acoustic guitar-led intro and outro give off the familiar comfort of a traditional Decemberists track. However, sandwiched in between the song’s edges is a spacey, synth-driven track that somehow manages to coexist with the indie-folk balladry of front man Colin Meloy’s lead vocals.

Meloy said the track was elevated by the band in the studio and he commented, “We were playing that on the road as a folk-rock anthem thing, but bringing in that obliterating synth really took it somewhere different. The whole band really stepped up and transformed these arrangements.”Image may contain: shoes

“Once In My Life” is the first song on I’ll Be Your Girl. I imagine you’ve felt this way, or are maybe feeling this way right now. It’s a pretty universal sentiment, I think. Embrace it. Hope you enjoy the song. – Colin Meloy
