Product Notes

Capitol Records will releases THE HAZARDS OF LOVE, the follow-up to the The Decemberists 2006 breakthrough, the Crane Wife, voted favorite album of the year by NPR listeners. With their fifth full-length album, the Portland-based quintet of Colin Meloy, Chris Funk, Jenny Conlee, Nate Query, and John Moen solidifies it's standing as one of the most innovative creative forces in music today. In an age when singles rule and the death of the album has been pronounced by many, The Decemberists who will be featured in a live session on NPRs "World Cafe" have fashioned an anomaly: A record that demands to be listened to from start to finish and reveals more with each subsequent play. The 17-song suite, recorded with the bands longtime producer, Tucker Martine, is rooted in ancient language and imagery, yet entirely modern and accessible. THE HAZARDS OF LOVE tells the tale of a woman named Margaret who is ravaged by a shape-shifting animal; her lover, William; a forest queen; and a cold-blooded, lascivious rake. Lavender Diamonds Becky Stark and My Brightest Diamonds Shara Worden deliver the lead vocals for the female characters, while My Morning Jackets Jim James, Robyn Hitchcock, and the Spinanes Rebecca Gates appear in supporting roles.
