Death Cab For Cutie: "I Will Possess Your Heart" MP3

Death Cab For Cutie have released the first single from May 13th's Narrow Stairs. "I Will Possess Your Heart" is over 8 and a half minutes long with Ben Gibbard's vocal not arriving until the midway mark and with the band slowing building in volume and intensity. Not what you'd expect and from what I hear this isn't the only mega-track on the record.

How I wish you could see the potential
The potential of you and me

It's like a book elegantly bound

But in a language that you can't read, just yet
You gotta spend some time, love
You gotta spend some time with me

And I know that you'll find, love

I will possess your heart

i will possess your heart
