Death Cab For Cutie frontman releasing solo album, Former Lives

What do you do when you get divorced from Zooey Deschanel after a few years of wedded bliss? You release a solo album.

Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard is releasing his debut solo album, Former Lives, on October 16th. The album will consist of 12 tracks that were written over a span of eight years, according to a press release. Following the release of the album, Gibbard will hit the road for a limited amount of tour dates.

No tracklisting has been released yet but one can only assume there will be a few veiled references to his ex-wife. Here’s hoping this album is racked with longing, sorrow, and heartbreak; what every good album needs to become a hit.
