Ben Gibbard "When the Sun Goes Down"
Death Cab for Cutie have a new album, Codes and Keys, due out May 31 via Atlantic. Apparently, that's not enough to satisfy frontman Ben Gibbard, since he just rolled out a new solo song called "When the Sun Goes Down."

It's a gentle, clip-clopping folk song with a serene melody, twangy alt-country guitar solo and some peaceful nighttime imagery. It comes from the soundtrack for Arthur, which arrives in cinemas April 8.
