The Decemberists used a Brooklyn street corner to announce their next album, but they're going a far more conventional route (YouTube) to tease the upcoming first single.

The indie outfit has posted a minute-long video (above) featuring the song, 'Make You Better,' which will be on the band's seventh full-length, 'What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World.' Frontman Colin Meloy played the song acoustically last week near the corner of Bedford and 7th in Williamsburg. (Check out our exclusive footage below.)

In the meantime, the band has promised the full studio version will be online Monday. Stay tuned!
