Death Cab For Cutie share new power ballad ‘Foxglove Through The Clearcut’

Death Cab For Cutie are back with a new single, “Foxglove Through The Clearcut.”

The track comes from their forthcoming album, Asphalt Meadows, out September 16th via Atlantic. “Foxglove Through The Clearcut” is a stunning, epic, five-minute power ballad. The track balances thought-provoking spoken words and explosive, textured instrumentals with ease. With stunning guitar riffs, shimmering keys, and slowly building melodies, this song is sure to move you.

“‘Foxglove’ is by far the most personal song on the record,” frontman Ben Gibbard explains. “While I was writing it, I thought I was merely the narrator. But the longer I sat with it, I realized I was both the protagonist and the narrator.”

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

In addition to “Foxglove Through The Clearcut,” Asphalt Meadows features the previously released “Here to Forever” and “Roman Candles.”
