A couple of years ago, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Son Volt’s Jay Farrar met while working together on a Jim Sampas documentary about Jack Kerouac. During this experience, the two decided to work together to create an album based on the words of Kerouac’s 1962 novel Big Sur. The book recounts Kerouac’s personal retreats out to a cabin in Bixby Canyon called “Big Sur”. The finished product, One Fast Move or I’m Gone: Kerouac’s Big Sur, will be released on Atlantic Records next Tuesday, Oct 20th. Thanks to NPR you can preview the album right here til the new album is released.
