The Postal Service's forthcoming reissue of "Give Up," the band's only album, will include two new tracks. Today, BBC radio listeners were treated to "Tattered Line of String," an all-new song that features Jenny Lewis singing alongside Ben Gibbard.
Lewis -- who fronts Rilo Kiley and sang backup on "Give Up" -- will also be featured on the second new song. The reissue hits stores on April 9, and the Postal Service have booked a stadium tour that kicks off that night in Reno, Nev. and concludes at New York's Barclays Center on June 14.
Despite building a fiercely loyal audience on the strength of 2003's "Give Up," Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello (DNTEL) have spent the past decade denying a reunion would ever take place. In the weeks leading up to the band's announcement, Gibbard told Spinner that there were "no plans" for Postal Service.
