Death Cab for Cutie plan a spring release for its seventh studio album which features strings and vintage keyboards. The album is "a testament to where we are as a band," Ben Gibbard explained.

"It's not a guitar-based record. We've been into vintage keyboards and playing with that palette," Founder Ben Gibbard told SPIN in an interview.  "We're not adding guitars because people will be expecting them."

"I'm so proud of this album that at this point I don't care if people don't like it," he added.

The CD is expected to comprise 12 to 13 tracks. The new project doesn't yet have a title and the band is still a "couple of weeks away" from completing it. Comparing the album to guitar-based 2008 release Narrow Stairs, Gibbard continued, "This new record has turned out to be much more of a construction project."
