If the Funny Or Die sketch didn't whet the appetites of The Postal Service fans, the two new songs from the duo may get folks in a tizzy.
"Turn Around" and "A Tattered Line of String" are both included in the deluxe reissue of Postal Service's sole release "Give Up." Ben Gibbard and DNTEL, who make up Postal Service, announced that they'd be headlining at several festivals this summer and going on tour to support their 10th anniversary, so these are pretty new accessories.
Or maybe one of 'em is. "Line of String" is a little more sophisticated, hitting the spot that the first half of "Give Up" gives up. Both tracks feature Jenny Lewis who, since the beginning of this century has dissolved Rilo Kiley, put out some excellent solo efforts and released an album with her boyfriend Johnathan Rice. She played on tour and on the Postal Service album, so it's only right...
"Give Up" will be reissued on April 9 and will feature live, remixed, covered and other versions of the Postal Service's songs. Full tracklist below.
