The Postal Service’s “A Tattered Line Of String”: Hear The New Song Featuring Jenny Lewis
The tenth anniversary reissue of The Postal Service’s Give Up isn’t out until April 9, so we thought we’d have to wait a bit longer to hear the new material. But today’s a big day for fans who never got that follow-up to the iconic noughties record, as Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello unveiled one of the two new tracks, “A Tattered Line of String.”
Tamborello’s synth blips and Gibbard’s vocals continue to do that delicate dance they did so well ten years ago, but this time there’s the added element of Jenny Lewis on backing vocals. She’ll be playing with The Postal Service on tour, so expect to hear her coos added to some of the original Give Up tracks as well. Hear the new cut below.
