Now that The Postal Service has blown out its 10 candles, it’s time for Ben Gibbard’s other seminal release to do the same. Death Cab for Cutie’s landmark album, Transatlanticism, will ring in its first decade with a special anniversary reissue on October 29th via Barsuk.
The album will be pressed to vinyl for the first time in years, complete with a download code for demos of each of its 11 tracks. However, those who’ve already purchased the LP (and have likely worn it down to a brittle patty over the years) will have the choice of purchasing these b-b-b-bonus features as a separate download digitally.
Check out one such demo for “Lightness” below (via Stereogum) and then make the horrific realization that time’s quickly slipping though your fingers one day at a time.
