The Postal Service return with new material & tour, setlist

Now, the duo rejoined to celebrate 10th anniversary of their first album, “Give Up”, with a “Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition” featuring a 15 tracks including two brand new songs, "Turn Around" and "A Tattered Line of String", with Jenny Lewis.
