For his latest Live From Home session, Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard covered tracks by Phoebe Bridgers, Elliott Smith, and more.

Over the past week, Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard has been hosting daily Live From Home sessions to connect with fans during the coronavirus pandemic.

For his latest 50-minute session that aired yesterday (22 March), the DCFC vocalist decided to cover songs, including Phoebe Bridgers' "Motion Sickness", Elliott Smith's "Waltz #2 (XO)", and tracks by Def Leppard, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, The Shins, The Flaming Lips, Rilo Kiley, and Big Star.

Towards the end of the session, Gibbard reveals he'll continue his cover sets each Sunday.

The band have also shared a playlist on Spotify of the songs Gibbard covered yesterday (22 March).

Gibbard is using each daily performance to donate to different charities. Yesterday's show saw him promote donations to Seattle's Country Doctor Community Health Centers.

Ben Gibbard's next Live From Homes session will air at 4pm PST today (23 March), which is 11pm GMT.
