On March 31, Death Cab for Cutie will release Kintsugi, their ninth album and follow-up to 2011’s Codes and Keys, via Atlantic. It’s the band’s first album without founding member Chris Walla, and its title refers to a Japanese art form that entails repairing ceramics with resin mixed with precious metals — no doubt a metaphor for their own internal repairs they’ve been undergoing. They’ve already released a handful of tracks from it, including “Black Sun” and “No Room In Frame.” Today, they’ve released another new track via Stereogum, called “The Ghosts of Beverly Drive,” and you can stream it below.
