Benjamin Gibbard is premiering his new album Former Lives on YouTube this week, all twelve songs. The album arrives next week on Barsuk Records in the US and City Slang in Europe. The music on Former Lives comes from various songs he's written over time, compiled as a full-length that he worked on with Aaron Espinoza from Earlimart. He's touring also, with Damien Jurado and Advance Base depending on location. "They're a side story, not a new chapter," he said. "I’m a songwriter and that’s my job, and with every record that we’ve made there would always be a couple of tunes that just didn’t seem to fit in with the band. If people wanted to be dismissive of the record, they could just say “Oh these are leftovers,” but they’re really not," he told Stereogum in a recent interview.
