The Decemberists are returning to the record racks next week with What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World. Fans have gotten a chance to hear a few new songs off of the record, and the band are giving us one more with “A Beginning Song.” The band have kept things simple for “A Beginning Song,” choosing to give us a simple lyric video over footage of the band playing in the studio. Sometimes, the simplest statement can be the most effective, particularly if that statement comes from a voice as unique and distinct as Colin Meloy’s. You can watch the video for “A Beginning Song” below.
What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World comes out on January 20th. You can stream the album now on iTunes Radio.
