Everyone’s favorite Portland, OR nymphic prog folk act The Decemberists are back at last with their sixth LP, The King is Dead, due January 18 via Capitol. The record features R.E.M.‘s Peter Buck on three of the album’s tracks, which makes sense considering Buck joined the band on their Hazards of Love tour as a member of Robyn Hitchcock’s backing band, occasionally jumping on stage for a rousing rendition of the classic Lifes Rich Pageant track “Begin the Begin.” Full tracklisting is below, and you can nab the track “Down By the Water” via a widget through the band’s official website, also linked to below.

The King is Dead tracklist:

01. Don’t Carry It All
02. Calamity Song
03. Rise to Me
04. Rox in the Box
05. January Hymn
06. Down By the Water
07. All Arise!
08. June Hymn
09. This Is Why We Fight
10. Dear Avery
