Death Cab for Cutie stopped by to chat and rock out at the Bryant Park Project studios, where they played a few classics and a riveting song from the band's latest album.

That new disc, Narrow Stairs, is Death Cab for Cutie's second major-label effort and is already getting some serious attention from critics and listeners alike. During their BPP studio session, the Grammy-nominated rock foursome played what's sure to become one of the album's biggest hits, the somewhat co-dependently titled but beautifully written single, "I Will Possess Your Heart."

WATCH: Death Cab for Cutie plays "I Will Possess Your Heart."
