Death Cab for Cutie ‘Home Is a Fire’ becomes street art

Seattle rockers team up with Shepard Fairey

Death Cab for Cutie teamed up with legendary street artist Shepard Fairey for "Home Is a Fire," the second video from the band's new album, Codes and Keys. Fairey puts singer Ben Gibbard's words on banners and pastes them up in bits of urban sprawl that might otherwise be considered run-down and ugly. It gets to the core of Fairey's street art ethos – using neglected urban landscapes as the canvas for thoughtful art – and the band's song, which is about finding a way to reimagine a familiar space.
