Listen: New Postal Service Song ‘Tattered Line of String’

Jenny Lewis guests on the frantic digi-pop ditty.

The Postal Service have kept their promise to return, and we're happy to share the news that the duo of  Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello have offered up a new track for your listening pleasure.

For the duo's 10th anniversary of the release of their debut album Give Up, Sub Pop has released "Tattered Line of String," a previously unreleased track.

Jenny Lewis offers backup vocals to the song, which calls to mind a sprinting soundtrack in a digi-blip world, like a floating bubble in a comatose dream Steve Jobs might've had in his final days had someone slipped him a bit of ecstasy. Is that a good thing? You decide.

the Give Up reissue will arrive on April 9 from Sub Pop.
