The Decemberists Release New Song ‘Oh No!’

    The Decemberists have released a new song, ‘Oh No!’, lifted from their forthcoming album As It Ever Was, So It Will Be Again. It follows the previously unveiled ‘Burial Ground’, ‘Joan in the Garden’, and ‘All I Want Is You’. Check it out below.

    “‘Oh No!’ is the sort of song that just tumbles out of you,” Colin Meloy explained in a statement. “It all started with the first line — ‘It was on a wedding night / How they danced by the firelight’ — and flowed from there. In my mind, the narrator of the song is channeling the two brothers from Emir Kusturica’s immortal film, Underground. This song is about causing havoc, causing chaos, its narrator forever followed by an even greater form of chaos, a great darkness. But it’s a darkness you can dance to!”

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