I feel as if we here at Dinosaurs When You Least Expect Them don’t give you good news often enough. Besides the Maddow thing and the assurance that a highly influencial southern state is going to turn a lovely shade of cobolt or periwinkle, I feel as if we too often just dwell on all that is wrong with the world.
Well, here’s a little gem:
The Decemberists have announced plans to release a singles series, the first of which will be released October 14.
‘Always The Bridesmaid: A Singles Series’, will come out in three volumes, which will be made available digitally and on 12” vinyl.
Volume 1 will be comprised of ‘Valerie Plame’ and ‘O New England’, and will be released October 14, while Volumes II and III will come out November 4 and December 2 respectively.
Fans who pre-order all three singles through the band’s website will receive a limited edition version on colored vinyl.
The band are currently working on the follow up to ‘The Crane Wife’, which came out in October 2006.
The track listings for ‘Always The Bridesmaid: A Singles Series’ is:
Volume I: ‘Valerie Plame’ / ‘O New England’
(Release date: October 14)
Volume II: ‘Days of Elaine’ / ‘Days of Elaine (long)’ and ‘I’m Sticking With You’
(Release date: November 4)
Volume III: ‘Record Year’ / ‘Raincoat Song’
(Release date: December 2)
That should hold you over until you get your text from Barack.
