Stream Death Cab for Cutie’s new emotional song “Kids in ’99”

Death Cab for Cutie dropped a new single today called “Kids in ’99” that teases a new 5-track release ‘the Blue EP’ due out on September 6th. This EP follows the themes of last year’s ‘Thank You for Today’ album. This new song is quite emotional as it reflects on a tragic pipeline gas explosion in the band’s hometown of Bellingham, Washington that killed two boys, ages 10 and 18. The song touches on the literal loss of these people, and loss of innocence. Maybe they will play this tune this week during their Lollapalooza set or their SOLD-OUT Lolla Aftershow at Metro, you can win your way into that after show here. 

The Blue EP Tracklist:
01. To the Ground
02. Kids in ‘99
03. Man in Blue
04. Before the Bombs
05. Blue Bloods

DCFC stopped by the Lounge last year to record this moving acoustic session which featured intimate performances of ‘Goldrush’, ‘Title and Registration’, and ‘Your Hurricane’.
