Cover song: “I Will Follow You Into The Dark” by Death Cab For Cutie
This is a song that has sort of haunted me since I first heard it in Minnesota in 2005. It’s a morbidly sweet song, and the chord changes always throw me. The lyrics are just straight-up unlike anything else I’ve heard. It’s really fun to play. My roommates and I listened to Plans on repeat for months and then went to see them live at the University of Minnesota with Franz Ferdinand. Ben Gibbard played it solo in the encore.
Joining me is Ian Thaddeus Durra, son of the Mighty Louis. Ian plays many instruments. We had a little time last week to do some live takes at Next Step Studios in Los Angeles. Ian is playing a guitar part that I could never pull off. I’m playing piano and singing.
