Kill Rock Starts’ inaugural pressing of 'Her Majesty The Decemberists’ on black vinyl.
Cover art has been updated to the original album cover, and includes a 10" x 57" poster of the full cover landscape by Carson Ellis.

Her Majesty the Decemberists is the second full-length album by The Decemberists, released on September 9, 2003. The song "Song for Myla Goldberg" was written years earlier, after Colin Meloy had been a media escort for the novelist Myla Goldberg during a tour following the publication of her first book, Bee Season. "The Bachelor and the Bride" has the words "stripped bare" in the chorus, and appears to be a reference to Marcel Duchamp's piece "The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even".
