Death Cab For Cutie are just a few weeks away from releasing their new album Thank You For Today. So, naturally, we’ve been gifted yet another song from the upcoming project. The new album, which drops August 17, has thus far been preceded by two other singles. Based on those, the album looked to be a further exploration into the more electronically textured sound they’ve been keen to play around with on recent releases. The new song, “Autumn Love,” is throwing that theory out the window a bit.
“Autumn Love” is another fairly typical single-ready song from a Death Cab release. It’s more in-line with lead-off single “Gold Rush” than the excellent “I Dreamt We Spoke Again.” This time out, though, the band are digging much deeper into guitar melodies. The overall instrumental sound is reminiscent of older albums, with its clean, mellow rock sound. It’s presenting yet another side to the band in their later-career sound. It seems like Thank You For Today is going to be a more surprising, varied record than we may have thought.
