Colin Meloy first debuted The Decemberists’ new single “Make You Better” by busking on a Williamsburg, Brooklyn street corner. They’ve since unveiled the proper studio version and a Nick Offerman-starring video to boot, but last night marked the first time the band has performed the song live on TV. Replay their performance on Conan below.
The Decemberists’ first album in four years, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, is due out January 20th via Capitol Records. They’ll support the release with an extensive world tour that begins in February. Find their full itinerary here.
