Ben Gibbard, the lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie, just released his first solo album on 10/16. There's a good interview with him on Vulture.
His voice is familiar, although this certainly isn't another Death Cab album. The songs are ones he wrote over the last decade, and didn't fit on previous albums. My favorite by far is the duet with Aimee Mann, "Bigger Than Love."
