The Crane Wife: Behind The Scenes

Being in the Decemberists isn’t all fun and games. Sure, there’s plenty of thesaurus reading and sea shanty singalongs … but you’ve also gotta deal with publicity. This video takes us behind the scenes of the Crane Wife photo shoot. Yeah, it’s just b-roll, but some of you Colin Meloy fanatics will get a kick out of it. And to think the new album cover could’ve looked like the Donnas’ Spend The Night!

A Stereogum.com premiere:

Album’s out 10/3. Stay tuned to decemberists.com.
