The Decemberists collaborate with Olivia Chaney to create Offa Rex
The Decemberists have teamed up with English singer-songwriter Olviia Chaney to form Offa Rex - a project that reimagines folk songs throughout history. They've released a single 'Queen of Hearts' that is both surprising and wonderful. Olivia Chaney's vocals are haunting, accompanied by an array of organs, strings, flute, and more. I'm excited to see what the album has in store. Watch out for its release on July 7th and check out Colin Meloy's explanation of the project here.
