Back in 2007, Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard was supposed to take part in Stars remix/cover album Do You Trust Your Friends?. For whatever reason, Gibbard never finished his cover of “Set Yourself on Fire”, but today, he tweeted a rough mix of the track. Though his version isn’t as manic as the original, it does achieve a kind of compromise between the folk and electro influences, almost to the point you’d swear this was a Postal Service leftover. Stream it below.
