Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard has stated that there are no plans for a follow-up to his and producer Jimmy Tamborello's acclaimed 2003 album as The Postal Service, 'Give Up'.

Gibbard told Spinner:

There are no plans to make a second record. I can't say that enough.


He added of the project: "I think people like the idea of a second Postal Service record better than they would like the second Postal Service record. It's the desire for something one can't have, the anticipation of possessing something is more fulfilling than actually having something."

He revealed that he is no longer interested in making electronic music, explaining that even though he enjoyed making the first Postal Service album he finds "making music in computers involves a lot of mouse time."

He continued: "I don't have an aesthetic for that. Keeping up on new software technology, I'm not particularly interested in that."

The Death Cab For Cutie man releases his debut solo album 'Former Lives' on November 12.

Gibbard has reassured fans that he isn't planning on abandoning his work with Death Cab For Cutie to concentrate on a solo career. "Creatively, I'm really cleaning a slate," he said. "I'm doubtful I'll have another solo album for another 10 years because the health of Death Cab for Cutie has never been better."

Of the content of 'Former Lives', Gibbard has said: "These songs span eight years, three relationships, living in two different places, drinking then not drinking. They're a side story, not a new chapter."

Gibbard recently divorced from She And Him vocalist Zooey Deschanel.
