I recently had the pleasure of spending a lazy sunday watching movies with my girlfriend and one of the movies we watched was the 2011 Russel Brand remake of Arthur.
Although the movie did have a few funny parts, I was really expecting more from the all star cast. But this is not a movie blog, so why am I writing about Arthur? Well the soundtrack that accompanied the movie was purely outstanding. It featured tracks from Eternal Summers, Mark McAdams, Daniel Merriweather, but most impressively from Ben Gibbard.
Gibbard most notable known from his time in Death Cab For Cutie has really become one of the best song writers of our generation. Try and find a Death Cab song that doesn’t pull at your heart strings.
Well Gibbard penned two brand new solo songs especially for this film that have been on constant rotation in my iTunes and I thought it was about time that I shared them. You can stream When The Sun Goes Down and Where Our Destination Lies below and if you enjoy them as much as I do, go out and buy the soundtrack, you won’t be disappointed.
