During an interview with MTV, Death Cab for Cutie bassist Nick Harmer announced the band will be releasing an EP of odds and ends left over from the Narrow Stairs sessions. The tentative title for the disk: The Open Door EP. The album is said to include an alternate version of "Talking Bird," originally written on Ukulele by Mr. Gibbard. Here's what Harmer had to say about it:
"When we finished Narrow Stairs, there were four extra songs that, because we were trying to put together an album, we ended up not including them. It's not like they're castoffs or anything; they're part of the Narrow Stairs experience. They needed to have a proper home, and the EP is it ... It'll be out this year, I think."
