Ben Gibbard Says Fans “Shouldn’t Hold Their Breath” For More Postal Service Music

    It’s been almost a decade now since Give Up, and still fans keep their hopes up for a second album from the Postal Service. In a recent interview with Spinner, however, Postal Service/Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard says that a future release is pretty unlikely. “There are no plans to make a second record … I can’t say that enough” he admits. “I find that making music in computers involves a lot of mouse time … I don’t have an aesthetic for that…. I’m much more interested in playing music than creating it.”

    Despite his current lack of interest, though, Gibbard says, “the door is not closed, but people shouldn’t hold their breath. You’re going to pass out if you do.” Gibbard’s new solo album, Former Lives, is out now Barsuk. [Spinner]
