After making our favourite album of 2017, The Queen of Hearts, as part of the Offa Rex project, The Decemberists have kicked off their 2018 with a huge announcement that we can expect another record from them this year.

The album is titled I’ll Be Your Girl and is due for release on the 16th March. I’ll Be Your Girl was recorded with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana del Rey, Wye Oak, Angel Olsen, Swans) and promises to be full of songs that “tend to the darker, more absurdist side of things”.

The Decemberists are also hinting at a world tour this year that may include Australia if they can make it work. The first single from I’ll Be Your Girl is the 80s sounding “Severed” – check out the track listing for the album and a stream of “Severed” below:

1. Once In My Life
2. Cutting Stone
3. Severed
4. Starwatcher
5. Tripping Along
6. Your Ghost
7. Everything Is Awful
8. Sucker’s Prayer
9. We All Die Young
10. Rusalka, Rusalka / The Wild Rushes
11. I’ll Be Your Girl
