In a Q&A with Rolling Stone Ben Gibbard laughed off suggestions The Postal Service’s long overdue follow-up to their 2003 hit Give Up is an indie version of Axl’s Chinese Democracy. Gibbard said both he and Jimmy Tamborello just don’t see it as a priority, in light of their main projects, Death Cab for Cutie and Dntel. He said,
“The anticipation of the second record has been a far bigger deal for everybody except the two of us…I don’t know about it being the indie-rock Chinese Democracy, but now that Chinese Democracy has come out, I guess it just becomes the second Postal Service record that will never come out. There never really was a plan to do a second album.”
He also discusses Obama’s victory on election night and how he, “was just kind of a wreck, bursting into tears at random points.”
