Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, a Seattle resident and massive Mariners fan, posted a love note to Ichiro on Tuesday in the form of a song he recorded called "Ichiro's Theme."

Following the trade of Ichiro to the New York Yankees, Gibbard posted the song on SoundCloud with a note saying, "I wrote this a few years ago. Today seems like the best day to let you all hear it. Thank you, Ichiro."

Gibbard, who recently announced a solo album, "Former Lives," recently joined ESPN's Baseball Today to talk about how the Mariners have tested his fandom over the years and how he keeps up with baseball on the road.
