NPR Music has been great at giving us sneak peeks at new music. This week they’ve posted two new streaming “Exclusive First Listen” items.

The first is a brand new song from the upcoming R.E.M. album, Collapse into Now. The album isn’t due out until March, but you can hear Oh My Heart today.

And the second is a sneak peek at The Decemberists new album, The King is Dead. It will be out January 18th, but in the meantime you can enjoy the entire album or individual tracks at NPR Music.

Look for both albums at the library as soon as they’re released. If you have suggestions for artists or albums MCLS should purchase, be sure to let us know in the comments.
