New Death Cab for Cutie Album Streaming

Death Cab for Cutie’s new album, Codes and Keys, drops next Tuesday, May 31.

However, you can listen to the album in its entirety over at NPR. The Washington rockers appeared on Wednesday’s Morning Edition to talk about their new songs and how the band has changed over the years.

Fans will notice Codes and Keys represents a more upbeat Death Cab than their previous albums, which contained more melancholic themes.

Frontman Ben Gibbard told NPR, “I feel that our music has always been really honest [about] the people we are now. As a songwriter, I’m not necessarily writing about myself or my life. But…I would be remiss if I tried to continue writing in a solely melancholic voice, given the fact that now I’m a married man.”

Check out Codes and Keys at NPR here.
