Single Serving: The Decemberists – Down By The Water

The Decemberists are back with a new single from their upcoming new album titled The King Is Dead scheduled for a January 18, 2010 release. The first single is titled “Down By The Water” featuring Gillian Welch on backing vocals and R.E.M.’s Peter Buck on guitar.  It is a heady, robust country-tinged rocker with a glistening, earthy acoustic guitar fronted melody.  Oh, and it is notably straight-forward — so those of you turned off by their last album are invited back into the fold.
