The Postal Service - 'Turn Around' [Listen]
It's been ten years since the formative duo of Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard and producer Jimmy Tamborello have created anything new as The Postal Service, but when rumors started to swirl a few months back of a reunion, there was some hope.
After joining a slew of upcoming music festival lineups, the duo finally started releasing new music. Earlier today, the group debuted 'Turn Around,' the second new track from the group featured on the deluxe reissue of their debut album Give Up.
The track premiered over at 107.7 The End, but has since been taken down. However a small 30-second sample of the track is still available below.
Give Up will be reissued April 8th in the UK and April 9th in the U.S. via Sup Pop. Catch the duo this May with a limited number of European tour dates.
The Postal Service European Tour Dates:
- 8 – Manchester UK @ Academy 2
- 20 – London UK @ Brixton Academy
- 21 – Paris FR @ Trianon
- 23 – Barcelona SP @ Primavera Sound 2013

It's a bouncy, blippy number that features sun-washed guitars and a galloping beat. [read more]
The vocals sing of beauty in failure and hope in despair; the fractured, damaged kind of happiness that the instrumental side of this song exhibits suits the sentiment very nicely. [read more]
