Ben Gibbard, ‘Bigger Than Love’ (Feat. Aimee Mann) – [Listen]
Ben Gibbard teams up with veteran singer-songwriter Aimee Mann for a duet on ‘Bigger Than Love,’ the second cut to surface from the Death Cab for Cutie frontman’s forthcoming solo album, ‘Former Lives,’ which drops Oct. 16. Mann does such a good job at matching Gibbard’s distinct style of singing that you’d better listen closely, or you may just be in for a surprise when the first chorus rolls around.
‘Bigger Than Love’ follows in the footsteps of first ‘Former Lives’ single ‘Teardrop Window,’ while ‘Former Lives’ itself follows Gibbard’s first solo album, 2003’s ‘Home Volume V.’ He plays a one-off show tomorrow (Sept. 26) at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, Calif., before launching a North American tour on Oct. 14 in Toronto, Ontario.
