Tuns out that PSA for Washington State’s Referendum 74 isn’t the only thing Ben Gibbard’s been workin on lately. The Death Cab For Cutie frontman announced his first official, full-length, solo LP. While Gibbard has released tracks under his own name plus work under the All-Time Quarterback Moniker, Former Lives will be his first true solo LP. The album will be out 10/16 on Barsuk. Cruise on over to Stereogum for a great interview with Ben about the album. Also, watch Death Cab on Letterman. And here’s Cut Copy’s remix of Death Cab.
