Ben Gibbard - Former Lives

Next week, Death Cab leader Ben Gibbard releases his solo debut Former Lives, an album of his songs that didn’t quite fit the Death Cab mode. We’ve already heard a handful of them: “Teardrop Windows,” “Something’s Rattling (Cowpoke),” the Aimee Mann duet “Bigger Than Love.” And now the entire LP is streaming as one big 37-minute YouTube chunk. Hear it below.

Former Lives is out 10/16 via Barsuk.

  2. Pleasantly surprised.

  3. He wasn’t kidding when he said it was a “mixed bag”.

  4. That album cover is shockingly bad…

  5. <3 Aimee Mann

  6. Much like everything else Gibbard has done in the past 8 or so years, I was mildly excited for this to be released, but now I find myself struggling to care that it exists.
