Decemberists Announce New EP florasongs

“Since there are very few records in existence that merit a nineteen-plus song tracklist (e.g. Tusk, Zen Arcade, and nope, thats it), we mercifully whittled [What A Terrible World…] down to fourteen tracks,” the band said. The remaining songs include “Why Would I Know?,” a catchy, folk rock track that fits in perfectly with the vibe of The Decemberists’ latest releases. Stream the song below:
