The Decemberists have put out a brand-new single in preparation of their new album I’ll Be Your Girl, that’s set to come out March 16th via Capitol Records. The new song, “Once in my Life” is a folk-pop power ballad and showcases the bands new synth-infused style. The band of 17 years is going strong, with their eighth studio album promising to show the band extending its reach into new territory. Centered around strumming acoustic guitar, a strong vocal performance and floating synth work, “Once in my Life” is a spirited song, and will kick off the new album. I’ll Be Your Girl will mark their first album in three years, the first since What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World (which was criticized for not pushing their sound forward), and will be backed with a full US tour. Track listing and tour dates after the line!
