Death Cab for Cutie presented fans with their newest song today, “I Dreamt We Spoke Again.” The band has been on a releasing roll in time for their next album, Thank You for Today, to be issued on August 17.
Singer Ben Gibbard’s electronic vocals tell a tale of a love long lost, only to be left with the ghost of a former lover’s voice in their dreams. The synth-sprinkled and percussion-heavy instrumentals knit together with Gibbard’s feedback-like singing to create an emotional, computerized story of hearing a past lover speak, even if through the subconscious.
This lead-off track comes as the second release from the upcoming album, preceded by their song “Gold Rush.”
Death Cab for Cutie announced a Fall 2018 tour in June and they are slated to arrive in Berkeley on September 27 at the Greek Theater with Cold War Kids. The announcement was shortly followed by a European tour reveal at the beginning of 2019.
Amidst their busy schedule, the band stopped by KFOG at the end of June. Check out their photos from their KFOG Private Concert.
