Published Jan 23, 2015Portland folk-pop favourites the Decemberists were honoured in their hometown earlier this week with an official Decemberists Day to mark the arrival of their latest album What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World.
Their promotional jaunt continued last night (January 22) on Jimmy Kimmel Live, with a performance of album cut "Make You Better." In addition to the latest single, the band delivered some new original songs — crafted out of ridiculous YouTube comments.
Once you've seen their performance of "Make You Better," watch as Colin Meloy leads the band through internet-inspired ditties about pandas on slides, hungry cats and Justin Bieber.
What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World is available now through Capitol Records. Watch the Decemberists on Kimmel's show below.
