Because, you know, with my personal life in the last year or so, people are going to see what they want to see. He was out galavanting and out dating these younger movie stars, and it was sad. So, in that sense, a geographical location helps tell the story.And I literally recorded “Shepherd’s Bush Lullaby” on my i Phone.Dance-rock groover "Good Help (Is So Hard to Find)" is a pointed celebrity critique that begins, "You'll never have to hear the word 'no'/If you keep all your friends on the payroll."Death Cab For Cutie Announces New Album, Moves on Without Chris Walla"The person I'm singing to is an amalgamation of people I came across living in Los Angeles," says Gibbard, who returned to Seattle after the divorce.
