Benjamin Gibbard – “Teardrop Windows”

Benjamin Gibbard - Former LivesDeath Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard is putting out his first solo album, Former Lives. He’s released a few one-off singles — a cover of the Stars song “Set Yourself on Fire” and an ode to baseball player Ichiro Suzuki, “Ichiro’s Theme” — but “Teardrop Windows” is the first taste of the new album.

As you might have expected, it’s not far from a typical Death Cab song. But it actually sounds a bit like his band’s older material — like something from The Photo Album with different production.

Check out the song below. Former Lives is out October 16 on Barsuk Records.
