Postal Service Drops Unreleased Song


The Postal Service have sweetened up their return by posting some new music: "A Tattered Line of String" features former Rilo Kiley singer Jenny Lewis, lots of frantic bedroom bleeps, busy guitar dubs and Ben Gibbard's unmistakable vocals. The track will be one of two unreleased songs on the Give Up reissue out April 9th, and was first premiered on Steve Lamacq's show on BBC 6 Music. Lewis, who sang vocals on much of Give Up, is also on the other unreleased track, "Turn Around".

The Postal Service will hit the road with Lewis starting April 9th in Reno on their first headlining tour in a decade. They'll stop by both weekends of Coachella, tour through Europe in May and close out on June 14th in Brooklyn's Barclays Center. (via Rolling Stone)
