Death Cab For Cutie, The New Year music video, from the album Transalanticism. Directed by Josh & Xander.
"The New Year" is a song by alternative rock band Death Cab for Cutie released as the first single from Transatlanticism.
The video takes place in a city in which a waiter in a fancy restaurant rides his bicycle to an old diner where he sees his love interest, all taking place on the night of New Year's Eve.
Transatlanticism is the fourth studio album by Death Cab for Cutie, released October 7, 2003 on Barsuk Records. Prior to the album's release, Ben Gibbard stated: "...unlike The Photo Album, I feel like this record is definitely more like a proper album. We’ve tried to construct it with transitions of songs going in and out of each other, and I think it's a little bit more expansive than the last record."
The album peaked at number 97 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart. The album has been certified Gold in the U.S. It is available on CD, SACD, and vinyl.
The album is Jason McGerr's first as the band's drummer. The album was rated the 57th best of the decade by Rolling Stone.
