Death Cab for Cutie went out on a limb when it came time to make a music video for "You Are A Tourist", lead single from next month's LP Codes and Keys. They decided to record it in one take. And live. The filming went down at 7 P.M. this evening, and if you didn't catch it then, you can watch it below. The video begins at about 16:22. The feat was directed by Tim Nackashi, who's worked with, among others, OK Go, so has some experience with this type of thing. It's a good-looking clip, with plenty of elaborate choreography, light-up suits, and Ben Gibbard's looking pretty dreamy these days.
You can pick up Codes and Keys on May 31, via Atlantic.
UPDATE: This morning, Atlantic posted a new Codes track called "Home Is A Fire", which gives more credence to the band's early claims that this seventh LP would be less guitar-based. Listen below.DEATH CAB for CUTIE - Home Is A Fire
