I’ve Got Good News and Bad News for Fans of The Postal Service

the postal service reunion

Good news: There’s a new Postal Service song out! Ooooh yeah! “A Tattered Line of String” is a surprisingly danceable tune that will appear on The Postal Service’s 10th Anniversary Deluxe Reissue of Give Up, arriving in stores April 9th, 2013.

Video: The Postal Service – “A Tattered Line of String

Bad news: Apparently Ben Gibbard and the rest of the band are NOT making any new music together. From label Subpop:

“To the best of our knowledge at this time, no, The Postal Service is not currently working on new material. And no, “A Tattered Line of String” is not a Give Up leftover from 2003. For those of you who like details like this, this song was actually begun in 2006 and finished up in 2012.”

While not new, it’s still new to us. Here’s hoping for more in the future. The Postal Service is going on tour, check the dates to see if they are coming to your town. Rumors are they’ll also be at Bonnaroo in June, the B-roo lineup drops Feb 19.
