The Decemberists will follow up their Number One hit album The King is Dead with a new EP of b-sides and outtakes titled Long Live the King. The set, due out on November 1st, will include a cover of the Grateful Dead's "Row Jimmy" and "E. Watson," a number featuring backing vocals by Laura Veirs and Annalisa Tornfelt. The set will also feature a demo track titled "I 4 U  & U 4 Me," which is – believe it or not! – not a Prince cover but an original composition.

Here is the track list for Long Live the King:
