We created a slideshow of Autumn de Wilde’s beautiful Polaroids on The Decemberists’ website. Set to the tune of “Rise to Me,” one of the many tracks featuring Gillian, we chose some of our favorites of the polaroids, many of which have Gillian in them. Follow this link to watch. Enjoy!
Gillian sings with the Decemberists on “Down by the Water,” the new single from their upcoming album The King Is Dead (release date January 18, 2011). You can preview the song from The Decemberists’ web site and preorder the album there as well.
