Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard debuted new solo material and a song from the band’s forthcoming album, Codes And Keys at the Noise Pop festival in San Francisco on Sunday, giving fans a sample of what to expect when the record drops on May 31st.Check out Gibbard’s performance of the songs Codes And Keys, the new album’s title track, as well as another new song, When The Sun Goes Down On Your Street.
When The Sun Goes Down On Your Street is actually a one-off solo song Gibbard wrote for the remake of Arthur, starring Russell Brand in Dudley Moore’s former role (it’s actually a surprisingly funny reimagining of the film – stay tuned for our review). The track won’t be on the new Death Cab album, but it’s most definitely worth a listen.
