The Decemberists Share "Once in My Life" from 'I'll Be Your Girl' LP

The Decemberists will be back with a new album called I'll Be Your Girl next week, and they've just teased out another preview track.
 
"Once in My Life" confirms that the band are ditching their folksy signature sound for more glam rock and synth-pop vibes, taking inspiration from artists like Roxy Music, Depeche Mode and New Order. It starts f Decemberists-y enough, but once the synths kick in, we get to hear another side Colin Meloy and co.
 
I'll Be Your Girl was produced by John Congleton. It's due out on March 16 Capitol.
