New Song: The Postal Service – A Tattered Line of String
The pseudo-king of the indie rock world climbs back on top of the mountain that made Death Cab even more notable than ever before. Without going into too much descriptive detail, we all know about The Postal Service’s debut album Give Up. It’s been lauded more than any other album over the course of the last ten years and, to much repeated dismay, it never had a follow-up despite talks we would see the second coming.
Perhaps it could never be topped, or perhaps the follow-up would have taken a small piece of Give Up’s greatness away, the reasons are unknown why a full-length ever came to surface. But until recently, the reissue of Give Up has gained a lot of steam, particularly with a teasing thought of more Postal Services songs – ones you’ve never heard before alongside remixes to appear on their reissue.
Until now, we’ve never heard it, and now you can listen to a completely unreleased track from The Postal Service titled “A Tattered Line of String”. The song has those slick beats that fall right in line with 2003’s Give Up – Ben Gibbard and Jenny Lewis’ vocals are still fitting of the era. Now the only question we have is, “Why wasn’t this released sooner?” The track is surely just as good as the rest of Give Up.
Looking for more? The Postal Service is also releasing a song titled “Turn Around” to appear on the reissue as well. Lots more to come leading up to the reissue of Give Up which will be released on April 9th.
