Death Cab for Cutie are preparing to release their tenth studio album, Asphalt Meadows, with second single "Here To Forever" out today. The song is upbeat and light, and comes with an irreverent Lance Bangs-directed video documenting the record-pressing process. Intercut with frontman Ben Gibbard packaging Death Cab records is footage of the band performing in a dimly-lit room.

"Here To Forever," as well as previous single "Roman Candles," explore more hopeful, optimistic themes with a classic indie-rock sound. Of "Here To Forever," Ben says, "It’s a song both about our impermanence and the anxiety of these times. It’s also about wanting to believe in something bigger even when it feels like nothing is out there." Watch the video below.

Asphalt Meadows is out September 16 via Atlantic, you can pre-order it on pink indie exclusive vinyl now. After a few shows this month with illuminati hotties, the band heads out on a headlining tour with guests Yo La Tengo and Low in September and October. They hit NYC on September 30 at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens with Low. All dates and recently-released track listing for Asphalt Meadows are below.
