Death Cab For Cutie have shared their new record ahead of its release on Friday (August 17).

‘Thank You For Today’ is the band’s first record without guitarist Chris Walla and arrives shortly before the 20th anniversary of the band’s debut ‘Something About Airplanes’.
‘Gold Rush’ emerged after frontman Ben Gibbard ‘flipped’ a loop taken from Yoko Ono’s song ‘Mind Train’.
Speaking to NME, Gibbard added: “If I’m on a campaign for this album, it’s for people to actually spend time with [Ono’s] music before they feel like they know what it is, because her music spans a much wider spectrum than people give her credit for.”
