Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard covers John Lennon and Phoebe Bridgers in latest ‘Live From Home’ session

Gibbard has been raising spirits with performances from his home studio.

Death Cab For Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard has covered tracks by the likes of John Lennon, Phoebe Bridgers and Def Leppard in the latest instalment of his ‘Live From Home’ session.

As coronavirus continues to spread across the globe, Gibbard has been raising spirits by streaming a series of live-streamed performances from his home studio.

The latest session, which took place yesterday (March 22), saw the Death Cab singer open with a fitting choice – the John Lennon track ‘Isolation’, before he went on to share a selection of other eclectic covers.


As well as offering his take on Rilo Kiley, Big Star and Elliott Smith, Gibbard also delivered covers of Phoebe Bridgers, Bob Dylan, the Shins, Def Leppard, and the Flaming Lips.

The latest offering from Gibbard comes after he previously shared a new song called ‘Life in Quarantine’.

During the first broadcast, Gibbard performed The Postal Service‘s ‘We Will Become Silhouettes’, Death Cab’s ‘Crooked Teeth’ and more.  He also offered up a cover of Radiohead‘s classic ‘Fake Plastic Trees’.

Last week, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered pubs, restaurants and bars to close as the crisis continues, before then pledging millions in grants and loans to secure their future.


campaign has also been launched for fans to buy a “digital pint” to support independent venues.
