The Decemberists Release New Album, "The King is Dead," Today 

The Decemberists unveil a new album, "The King is Dead."

You may have already heard the first single from the album, "Down by the Water," but The Decemberists new record is finally out today. And it very well might be one of their best.

While 2009's Hazards of Love was a concept album featuring the Portland band's darkest sounds, The King is Dead is the most Americana-influenced work of the Decemberists catalog. "All Arise!" even features some fiddle work and you can hear Gillian Welch's vocals on "Down by the Water."

But as a whole the album -- while not holding to the sort of concept approach found on The Decemberists' two prior records -- is as strong as anything they've done in the past.

Give a listen to the album in its entirety right here via NPR.
