The Decemberists have announced a new EP.
‘Traveling On’ features five offcuts from the sessions for their latest album, ‘I’ll Be Your Girl’, released earlier this year. It’ll arrive digitally on 14th December, with a 10” vinyl out from 21st December.
The band explain: “Perhaps other bands would be content to rest on the laurels of another successful record released, another romp about the globe put to bed – BUT NOT THE DECEMBERISTS.
“No, folks, we have one last thing we’d like to impart to you before we go into our deserved siesta: We are announcing the ‘Traveling On EP’!
“This little bugger is a sharp twenty-one minutes of songs that were recorded during the ‘I’ll Be Your Girl’ sessions but never quite found a home on the album those sessions produced.”
The track listing reads:
1. Down On The Knuckle
2. I Will Not Say Your Name
3. Tripping Along (Full Band Version)
4. Midlist Author
5. Traveling On
