Death Cab For Cutie reflect on their own mortality on new single ‘Here to Forever’

Death Cab for Cutie are back with a video for their new single, “Here to Forever.”

“Here to Forever” comes from the indie rockers’ forthcoming album, Asphalt Meadows, out September 16th via Atlantic. On the track, frontman Ben Gibbard confronts his own mortality as he sings lines like, “In every movie I watch from the ’50s/ There’s only one thought that swirls around my head now/ That’s that everyone there on the screen/ Yeah everyone there on the screen/ They’re all dead now.” Directed by Lance Bangs, the accompanying video stars Natalie Palamides and Courtney Pauroso as owners of a record pressing company.

“It’s a song about our impermanence and the anxiety of these times,” Gibbard explains. “It’s also about wanting to believe in something bigger even when it feels like nothing is out there.”

Watch the video for “Here to Forever” below.

Produced by John Congleton, Asphalt Meadows serves as the follow-up to 2018’s Thank You For Today.

In addition to “Here to Forever,” Asphalt Meadows features the previously released “Roman Candles.” Pre-order Asphalt Meadows here.
