The band recently shared ‘Foxglove Through The Clearcut’, the third single to be lifted from the band’s forthcoming album following ‘Roman Candles’ and ‘Here To Forever’.

“‘Foxglove’ is by far the most personal song on the record,” frontman Ben Gibbard recently said of the single in a statement. “While I was writing it, I thought I was merely the narrator. But the longer I sat with it, I realised I was both the protagonist and the narrator.”

During an interview with NME last March, Gibbard also discussed how the songs on the forthcoming album were written at a time of reflection on his own life and mortality amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “There is a theme of the loss of time and the finite amount of it that we all have.This last year of our lives has put a fine point on the fact that we are all mortal and only here for a brief period of time. It goes by quicker than you think.”

He added: “Love and death are always big things for me, but there’s a new component about how quickly time moves and how impermanent our existence here truly is.”
