The acoustic version of Death Cab for Cutie's 10th studio album, Asphalt Meadows, includes acoustic versions of all 11 songs plus a cover of Low's "The Plan," in honor of late Low drummer Mimi Parker. Low was set to join Death Cab on tour prior to Mimi's November 2022 passing from ovarian cancer.
Ben Gibbard shared in a statement:
"I first saw Low in 1994 opening for Sunny Day Real Estate at the OK Hotel in Seattle. Since then they've been one of the most influential and important bands of my life. It was the fulfillment of my teenage self's indie rock dream when our bands became friends while on tour together in 2012.
"We were incredibly saddened by Mimi's passing this past November. She was an incredible artist and an even better human being.
"We believe the best way to remember the musicians we lose is to play their songs. 'The Plan' has always been one of our favorite Low songs and is presented here in tribute to Mimi."
