Death Cab for Cutie has released a new song called “Here to Forever,” which will appear on the band’s upcoming album, Asphalt Meadows.

“It’s a song both about our impermanence and the anxiety of these times,” says frontman Ben Gibbard. “It’s also about wanting to believe in something bigger even when it feels like nothing is out there.”

You can listen to “Here to Forever” now via digital outlets. Like the previously released single “Roman Candles,” “Here to Forever” is accompanied by a video directed by filmmaker Lance Bangs, who’s previously worked with artists, including Nirvana, R.E.M. and Green Day. You can watch that streaming now on YouTube.

Asphalt Meadows, the 10th Death Cab album, arrives September 16. After finishing off a batch of summer dates this week, Gibbard and company will launch a full U.S. tour in support of Asphalt Meadows in September.
