Death Cab For Cutie Are Releasing A Deluxe 20th Anniversary Edition Of ‘The Photo Album’

Back in the early aughts, Death Cab For Cutie was already doing things that no indie band would dream of, like covering Björk’s “All Is Full Of Love.” That cover came out on the Stability EP of bonus material from 2001’s breakthrough The Photo Album. Now, 20 years later, a deluxe 20th anniversary edition of The Photo Album, which includes with Stability in its whopping 35 total tracks, is on the way.

Out digitally on October 29th and then next spring on vinyl, the release also includes the remastered original album, previously unreleased tracks, B-sides, rare material, and all of the original demos. You can hear the demo for “Coney Island” above, which DCFC leader Ben Gibbard says was “very indicative of the process we were employing at that point, which was to deconstruct something and build it completely back up.”

Find the full tracklist and the band’s select tour dates below.
