The Decemberists Announce 'Traveling On' EP

Monday, 19 November 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

The Decemberists have announced a new EP.

'Traveling On' features five tracks that were recorded during the sessions for their latest album, 'I'll Be Your Girl'. Four are new b-sides and one is a rework of Tripping Along. It is out on December 14, except for in the UK and Europe where a physical release will follow on December 21.

Introducing the record online, the band said:

Here we are, in the final days of the YOUR GIRL/YOUR GHOST tour, the release of our 8th record, 'I’ll Be Your Girl,' a bare glimmer in the fogged rear-view mirror of time. Perhaps other bands would be content to rest on the laurels of another successful record released, another romp about the globe put to bed — BUT NOT THE DECEMBERISTS. No, folks, we have one last thing we’d like to impart to you before we go into our deserved siesta: We are announcing the 'Traveling On EP'!

This little bugger is a sharp twenty-one minutes of songs that were recorded during the 'I’ll Be Your Girl' sessions but never quite found a home on the album those sessions produced. What’s the tracklisting, you ask? Look no further:

1. Down On The Knuckle
2. I Will Not Say Your Name
3. Tripping Along (Full Band Version)
4. Midlist Author
5. Traveling On

This EP will be out on compact disc, 10” vinyl and, as is the mode, digital bits via your preferred streaming service. However, if you order it now via the Decemberists shop, you can opt to receive a bespoke t-shirt as well. Vinyl copies will include a coupon for a digital download.

PLUS: if you order the EP through our web shop, you’ll INSTANTLY have access to digital files of two songs — "Traveling On" and "Tripping Along (Full Band Version)."

10” vinyl & CD released everywhere on December 14, except UK/EU, released December 21. Shop all pre-order options here: https://Decemberists.lnk.to/TravelingOnEPFP
