The Decemberists Release New Song ‘All I Want Is You’

The Decemberists have unveiled a new song, ‘All I Want Is You’. It’s set to appear on their forthcoming LP, As It Ever Was, So It Will Be Again, along with the previously released ‘Burial Ground’ and ‘Joan in the Garden’. Check it out below.

“‘All I Want Is You’ is a love song,” frontman Colin Meloy explained in a statement. “An unapologetic, wear-it-on-its-sleeve love song. I don’t write a ton of those, at least not in this vein. The song grew out of the finger picking pattern — “Don’t want pretty poses…” — and I just followed that lead. In the end, it just kind of wrote itself. It’s so bare bones, it lived for a long time in my songwriting notebook, kind of in hiding, before I got up the courage to put it out there. It shares a title and hook with many songs that have come before it, but I like to think I’m merely adding my own take to that tradition.”

As It Ever Was, So It Will Be Again will be released on June 14 through YABB/Thirty Tigers.
