The King is Dead Deluxe Edition

Are you a serious Decemberists fan?  If so, you can order their new album, The King is Dead, in a deluxe edition ($165 or with a t-shirt for $180), which comes packaged with:

  • A one-of-a-kind Polaroid photograph by Autumn de Wilde from the Impossible Project/Decemberists series
  • 72 page hardcover book featuring over 250 unique Polaroid photographs by Autumn de Wilde and illustrations by Carson Ellis
  • The King Is Dead CD
  • Pendarvia DVD – a 30 minute short film by Aaron Rose, documenting the making of the album
  • The King Is Dead on 180 gram white vinyl with special cover
  • Limited edition Giclée print illustrated by Carson Ellis
  • Digital album download code delivered on January 18
  • Instant download of live video of “Rise To Me” from Musicfest Northwest in Portland, Fall 2009
  • Instant download of “Down By The Water”
  • All presented in a linen wrapped, clamshell box with foil-stamped cover

You get quite a bit, but really only the true fan or rich person will probably order this.  Still, I love that bands are doing stuff like this, as opposed to just shilling a new album.  Order at Decemberists.com.
