Death Cab for Cutie have unveiled "I Dreamt We Spoke Again," the opening track off their upcoming ninth studio LP, Thank You for Today. You can watch the lyric video above via YouTube. This song is the latest single the band have released ahead of their new album, following last month's "Gold Rush."
"I Dreamt We Spoke Again" boasts a dreamy vibe over a consistent chord progression. Ben Gibbard's haunting vocals lament rekindled feelings for an ex, as tranquil harmonies soar with Jason McGerr's steady beat and Nick Harmer's subtle bass fills. The keyboards are at the forefront and are executed with smooth chords complemented by an infectious guitar riff.
Overall, "I Dreamt We Spoke Again" continues the introspective vibe shared by "Gold Rush," which discusses Gibbard's observations of changes in his hometown of Seattle. The song offers a provocative perspective on past relationships and the feelings that linger even after they are broken off.
Thank You for Today is set for release on August 17, 2018 and is available for purchase on Amazon and other music sellers.
