Death Cab for Cutie is out with their new single, “Foxglove Through the Clearcut,” from the forthcoming album, Asphalt Meadows. The track is accompanied by a lyric video from frequent Death Cab collaborator Juliet Bryant, which heightens the track’s moving spoken-word components and meditative instrumentation.

 

“‘Foxglove’ is by far the most personal song on the record,” lead vocalist and guitarist Ben Gibbard said in a statement. “While I was writing it, I thought I was merely the narrator. But the longer I sat with it, I realized I was both the protagonist AND the narrator.”

The band previously released “Here to Forever” and “Roman Candles” from the upcoming album. The eight-time Grammy-nominated group will perform next at Indianapolis’ All In Festival on Sept. 4, followed by a U.S. headlining stint beginning Sept. 22.
