First Listen: Stream Ben Gibbard’s first solo album on YouTube
Ben Gibbard, prolific and poetic frontman for Death Cab for Cutie, has gotten me through a lot of hard times. He got me through my freshman year of college, through breakups and through, well, just about everything. So when I heard he was releasing a solo album, my first reaction was the closest to peeing your pants you can get without actually peeing.
The album, Former Lives, will be released on Oct. 16, but starting today you can stream the album in its entirety on YouTube. But you better hurry, because the link will expire once the album drops.
You can pre-order the album from Gibbard’s website. Meanwhile, click play below to hear it in its entirety.
Hint: it’s magical. Like, pure unicorn magic. And you’re going to love it.
