The Decemberists iTunes Session Details

The Decemberists have set an August 2nd release date for their exclusive iTunes Session. Here are the official details:

The set also includes songs from The Crane Wife ("Shankill Butchers") and The Hazards Of Love ("The Hazards Of Love 4 (The Drowned)"), as well as covers of Leonard Cohen's "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye" and Fruit Bats' "When U Love Somebody."
