Big Sur Becomes an Album

We all know that Zooey Deschanel's fiance is a big Jack Kerouac fan. This fall, we'll get to hear the Death Cab for Cutie frontman, along with Son Volt's Jay Farrar and various other musicians, put Keroauc's Big Sur to song on One Fast Move or I'm Gone.

Paste has an in-depth article on the project and interview with Ben Gibbard that you should definitely check out.

I didn't know about this. Thanks for the info! I love Ben Gibbard and Jack Kerouac. And I love the idea of a concept album based on a book. It's a fun game to play. What music to put to our favorite books.

A literary tune perhaps, an idea for a book.
