Death Cab for Cutie has premiered a new song called “Foxglove Through the Clearcut,” a track off the band’s upcoming album, Asphalt Meadows.
“‘Foxglove’ is by far the most personal song on the record,” says frontman Ben Gibbard, who performs the cut almost entirely as a spoken word piece.
“While I was writing it, I thought I was merely the narrator,” he adds. “But the longer I sat with it, I realized I was both the protagonist AND the narrator.”
Asphalt Meadows, the follow-up to 2018’s Thank You for Today, will be released September 16. It also includes the previously released songs “Here to Forever” and “Roman Candles.”
Death Cab will launch a U.S. headlining tour in support of Asphalt Meadows September 22 in Madison, Wisconsin.
