Watch The Decemberists Debut “Lake Song” & “Philomena” At Boston Calling
This past weekend, at the Boston Calling festival, the Decemberists played their first show in nearly three years (not counting that Parks & Rec performance). After all that time away, it would be a fair bet that they’ve got new music in the works, and indeed, it looks like they might. During their set, the band debuted a couple of new songs: A slower folky, strummy number that might be called “Lake Song” and a jaunty jangle that might be called “Philomena.” Below, check out shaky fan-made video of both songs.
No word yet on a new Decemberists album, but you have to figure it won’t be long now.
