January Hymn is the second shared track from the Decemberists’ upcoming release, the King is Dead. January Hymn is near the archetype for a Decemberist track. In no way is that a bad thing. Meloy employ’s his trademark vocals, the subtle echo that feels like a tremble. The track feels as though its an opener for a huge epic track. We won’t really know until we hear the album as a whole, but its safe to assume, The King is Dead, will bring the Decemberists into the new year with some fantastic music.
Get excited for this release, January 18th is coming soon.
