Vid Break! Death Cab's Chris Walla Talks New Album
With Death Cab for Cutie's new single "You Are a Tourist" hitting the radio this week, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this video of BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe interviewing DCFC guitarist/long-time producer, Chris Walla. Walla discusses the band's decision to use a third-party producer for the first time in their 13-year, 6 (and soon to be 7) album career as well as the minimalist direction they have chosen to take for their upcoming album, Codes and Keys, dropping May 31st.
Walla is eloquent and affable as usual, a reminder of the fact that Death Cab is one of the most intelligent and down-to-Earth indie bands out there today.
