Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie has shared a video where he performs the new song “Life In Quarantine” which is inspired by what we’re all going through with the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis. The Seattle biweekly alternative newspaper The Stranger premiered the video, which you can watch below. In response to the COVID-19 Gibbard has been live streaming solo concerts from his home studio. Also watch today’s concert below, which also includes another performance of “Life In Quarantine.”

The song will be available on all streaming services in the coming days.
