I recently came across an unreleased song that Ben Gibbard has been known to play at some of his solo shows. As far as I know there is no studio recording of the song. The track is untitled, though most fans refer to it as “A Lovely Affair”, “Beginning to Begin”, or simply “New Song”. Also I’ve posted a cover of Daniel Johnston’s haunting ballad “Dream Scream” performed by Death Cab, as well as a live version of “State Street Residential”, that I really like. I also uploaded the demo version of “Lightness” that is featured on Drive Well, Sleep Carefully (DVD). I will be putting together an archive of all Death Cab related unreleased tracks, demos, live recordings and so on….get excited!
Now right click save as and get your cry on.
