watch Ben Gibbard cover Joy Division / New Order’s “Ceremony” solo acoustic

Ben Gibbard

Night two of Ben Gibbard‘s daily self-isolation livestreams is a wrap, and like on night one, he included a very exciting cover. Yesterday he did Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees” and today he did the Joy Division/New Order classic “Ceremony” and he sounded great. “You don’t forget that you love a song, but it’s just been a while since you’ve realized how fucking great it is,” Ben said when talking about the inspiration behind covering this one. Indeed.

He also did a handful of Death Cab For Cutie songs and used both piano and guitar tonight (“Title and Registration,” “Technicolor Girls,” “Passenger Seat,” and more), as well as the song he wrote for The Monkees, “Me and Magdalena,” and he closed with The Postal Service‘s “Such Great Heights.”

If you missed the livestream or just want to relive it, watch an archive of the full set and see the setlist below. The “Ceremony” cover starts at the 40-minute mark.

Tune back in Thursday (3/19) at 7 PM ET for another livestreamed solo acoustic Ben Gibbard set.
