The Decemberists have shared new single, “All I Want Is You.” The song is a taste of their forthcoming new album, which drops on April 24th via YABB Records (Thirty Tigers). The band will be hitting the road, behind the album, starting April 30th in Kingston, NY. As It Ever Was, So It Will Be Again was produced by lead-singer Colin Meloy and Tucker Martine and featuring guest appearances from The Shins’ James Mercer and REM’s Mike Mills.

Colin Meloy on “All I Want Is You”:

“”All I Want Is You” is a love song. 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.”
