UPDATE: The Decemberists have added additional North American dates to their tour, in addition to the European dates listed earlier this month. The full touring schedule is below at the bottom of the post.

Colin Meloy’s done busking on Bedford Ave., but The Decemberists are still hard at work promoting their upcoming album What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World. Their follow-up to 2011′s The King is Dead will be released very early next year and the first single off the new LP is available for streaming on Spotify.

The group has been performing versions of “Make You Better” since January of this year, but they’re also teasing a video for the song, where you can watch the making of the mural in Brooklyn that initially announced the album’s release.

The full lyric video is available as well:

What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World is due out on January 20, 2015 via Capitol Records. (A ticket pre-sale code for the band’s upcoming tour is available when you pre-order the album.)
