Online Exclusive: Death Cab for Cutie Perform “Title and Registration” For Storytellers Audience

by

Storytellers: Death Cab for Cutie premieres this Friday at 11 p.m. ET/PT, but unfortunately this performance of “Title and Registration,” the third single from 2003′s Transatlanticism, won’t air during the performance. But we couldn’t leave such a good performance sit in the vault, so we shared it with Stereogum, and with you.

Although the band does invite string players to join them for some songs on Storytellers, they stick with their touring formula for this song, despite the difficulty of performing its multi-layered instrumentation as a quartet. Their commitment to performing as they did when they were carting their own gear is a story in itself.
