COLIN MELOY of THE DECEMBERISTS took to the corner of the L stop at Bedford & 7th in BROOKLYN to announce the new album -- What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World – and busk new and old songs including the first single 'Make You Better' in front of a wall mural revealing the album art.
MALOY tweeted the location and time an hour before he took to the streets and over 80 people came to watch his impromptu performance and sing along.
Shortly after, the Internet and blogs blew up with news of the new project including articles on PITCHFORK, STEREOGUM, SPIN, CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND, BROOKLYN VEGAN, GOTHAMIST, PIGEONS & PLANE, DIFFUSER and many more.
