How Many 5/4 Measures are in Death Cab for Cutie’s The New Year?

Today I met with one of my drummers who has been working on the song “The New Year” from the Transatlanticism record. Our focus has been on counting in this song as there are innumerable time signature changes. It is imperative that a drummer be able to own his/her part and hold the band together through solid counting.
