Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard returns with a second cut off his solo debut, Former Lives, due out October 16th via Barsuk. Following in the footsteps of “Teardrop Windows”, “Bigger Than Love” is another soulful diary entry to staple within Gibbard’s sprawling lyricism, though this time he’s not alone. Aimee Mann lends her vocals here and the pair go together like — apologies Forrest Gump for cribbing your line — peas and carrots. Stream it now at NPR.

Starting later this month, Gibbard will hit the road for a block of U.S. tour dates. Consult the full itinerary below.
