The Decemberists‘ last project was a short one. The King Is Dead was trimmed down to only ten tracks. The downside of this is obvious, but there’s also a positive that is just now revealing itself: The Decemberists have a full clip of tracks that didn’t make it to the album, and they aren’t throwaways either. PowPowPow. They’ll be putting the songs together for a six song follow-up EP called Long Live The King, out November 1st. Check out two songs below, courtesy of Vulture and Paste.

The Decemberists – “Foregone”

The Decemberists – “E. Watson”
