For those of you who don’t know him by name, Ben Gibbard is best known as the lead singer of Death Cab For Cutie and while he’s been in several other side-projects through the years, Former Lives marks his first ever solo album. Gibbard explains, “These songs span eight years, three relationships, living in two different places, drinking then not drinking” so expect an eclectic mix of sounds from this 12 song offering. And while Former Lives doesn’t hit shelves until next week, a full stream of the album is being offered via youtube. Take a listen to the album and follow along with the tracklist below.
