Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard is the latest to deliver a Tiny Desk (Home) Concert for NPR Music, and in the process he debuts a new song called “Life in Quarantine” and paid tribute to Fountains of Wayne songwriter Adam Schlesinger who just passed away.
And with that, the heavy-hearted Death Cab for Cutie frontman performs his newly written song from America’s first coronavirus hotspot, Seattle. The song is called “Life in Quarantine,” and it’s not only portrait of his city’s current state; it’s a gift to that city. Ben is donating money from streaming and purchases to Aurora Commons, a self-described “welcoming space for our unhoused neighbors.”
