Baseball Fan Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie Has a New Baseball Song

Ben is devestated that the Seattle Mariners’ Ichiro Suzuki is now a New York Yankee.  As a fan, he wrote “Ichiro’s Theme” a couple of years ago but didn’t have anyplace to put it.  Now that Suzuki has changed coasts, is a good time as any.

Ben has a new solo album (to be released under the name “Benjamin Gibbard”) called Former Lives coming October 16.
