Death Cab For Cutie on Chance the Rapper collaboration: “we couldn’t be more thrilled”
Chance the Rapper's new album The Big Day is out now, and one of the highlights is "Do You Remember," which was co-written and co-produced by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and features the entire Death Cab For Cutie, including hook sung by frontman Ben Gibbard. Death Cab wrote more about their collaboration with Chance on Twitter:
It all started with a, well, chance encounter three years ago backstage at Bonnaroo. Turns out that we and @chancetherapper had a bit of a mutual admiration society going on, and we had a very fun hang in our dressing room, in which he revealed a straight-up impressive familiarity with some pretty deep Death Cab catalog cuts, and during which the possibility of a collaboration was briefly mentioned.
Fast forward to 2019, and we were truly surprised and honored when Chance got back in touch and asked us to be part of a song called "Do You Remember", which appears on his debut record, THE BIG DAY, which is out worldwide as of right now. We couldn't be more thrilled.
Thank you, Chance, and congratulations on your big day!
