Postal Service Reunion Details Confirmed
Call it comeback! Not only has the much-rumored Postal Service reunion been confirmed, but now more details about the return are available as well. A day after it was announced that the the synth-pop duo — which features Death Cab for Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard and producer Jimmy Tamborello (aka DNTL) — will be getting back together to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its lone album ‘Give Up’ and performing at this year’s Coachella, it is now known that a deluxe edition of ‘Give Up’ is in the works.
The ‘Give Up Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition’ set will feature a remastered version of the original 10-track album packaged with a 15-track bonus disc that will include the new songs ‘Turn Around’ and ‘A Tattered Line of String,’ plus five remixes, a previously unreleased live cut and covers of two Postal Service tunes from the Shins and Iron and Wine. The set is due out as in two-CD, three-LP and digital formats April 9.
Additionally, a Postal Service appearance at this year’s Coachella has now been confirmed by three different sources (dates forthcoming), along with additional appearances to be announced. Check the band’s website for confirmed dates, which will be posted there as they are announced.
