Death Cab for Cutie

The first single from Death Cab for Cutie’s forthcoming album Narrow Stairs has made its debut. Clocking in at 8:35, it’s much longer than the typical Death Cab song. ‘I Will Possess Your Heart’ has an intro that lasts just long enough to trick you into thinking it’s an instrumental, but the voice of Ben Gibbard soon chimes in with his familiar brand of lyrics. But is that something sinister I hear this time around? Clearly that intro will be cut in the radio edit, but it makes me eager to see what direction the rest of the album is taking.

Narrow Stairs is out May 13 on Atlantic Records, which makes it a great after-birthday gift for me.
