The Decemberists Reveal Limited Box Edition of The King is Dead


The Decemberists have banded with renowned photographer Autumn de Wilde and The Impossible Project to craft an elaborate limited-edition box-set for The King is Dead. The album drops on Capitol Records Jan. 18 in the U.S. and on Rough Trade Records Jan. 17 in Europe.

The limited edition stops pressing at 2,500 and features unique de Wilde Polaroids. Each box includes a CD, a 180-gram ivory vinyl record with exclusive album art, the Aaron Rose documentary Pendarvia, a hardcover collection of de Wilde photographs and Carson Ellis drawings and a signed Giclée print of a privileged Ellis illustration.
