Listen to Death Cab for Cutie’s Second ‘Kintsugi’ Single, ‘No Room in Frame’
Following “Black Sun” -- the first song to emerge from their upcoming eighth full-length, Kintsugi -- Death Cab for Cutie have debuted a follow-up single and the forthcoming album’s lead-off track, “No Room in Frame.” Take a listen to the song below (via NME):
The song features a blippy intro before frontman Ben Gibbard opens the album by declaring, “I don’t know where to begin / There’s too many things that I can’t remember.” It’s the kind of introspective writing set to atmospheric instrumentation that’s long since become a staple on Death Cab albums. Gibbard goes on to sing, "Was I in your way / When the cameras turns to face you? / No room in frame for two" -- perhaps a veiled reference to his relationship with ex-wife, actress and She & Him singer Zooey Deschanel.
The Seattle indie rockers previously premiered “No Room in Frame,” along with “Black Sun” and the LP’s third track, “The Ghost of Beverly Drive,” last month during concerts leading up to Kintsugi’s March 31 release. The band also unveiled a music video for “Black Sun” earlier this month.
Kintsugi follows Death Cab’s 2011 effort, Codes and Keys. It will be their first since the departure of founding member Chris Walla, although Walla did contribute to the forthcoming LP.
