Listen: Death Cab for Cutie's Atmospheric Ballad 'You Are A Tourist'

Stream the first single from the band's new album 'Codes and Keys'

By |

Death Cab For Cutie have promised that their forthcoming seventh album Codes and Keys – in stores May 31st – will emphasize vintage keyboards and electronic textures, but "You Are A Tourist," the record's first single, signals that longtime fans shouldn't worry about the group abandoning the tuneful rock that made them famous. "You Are A Tourist" isn't much of a departure at all – if anything, it's less a step toward the electronica of frontman Ben Gibbard's side project the Postal Service and more a jump in the direction of U2's more recent material.
