The Decemberists have released the five songs that didn’t make it onto its January album, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World as the EP, florasongs.
Featuring Nate Query (also Black Prairie) on bass, the album’s title references the Portland studio belonging to Tucker Martine, who co-produced What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World with the band.
Arguing that only a very few albums are great enough to include 19 tracks, the band opted for 14 for the January album. However, five is a great number for an EP.
Check out the florasongs track “Why Would I Now?” to see how you feel about what was left for the EP:
