After eight years of waiting and an extra two weeks due to some unforeseen circumstances, Modest Mouse’s highly anticipated new album, Strangers to Ourselves is out and ready for fans to listen to, in full.
Check out the complete stream of the album below, directly from Spotify.
Before the release of the 15-track record, the band had release several songs including lead single “Lampshades on Fire,” “Coyotes,” “The Best Room,” “The Ground Walks, With Time in a Box,” and closing track, “Of Course We Know.”
During a recent interview with hmv, frontman Isaac Brock revealed that the band already had another album in the works; a companion record to Strangers to Ourselves.
“I’m pretty far along with the next one as it is. I went in to making this one with two records in mind,” Brock explained. “It’ll be released as quickly as it’s legally allowed to be. It’s a partner to [Strangers to Ourselves].”
But that interview isn’t even the first time Brock has made reference to another record from the Washington state band.
When talking to Relix about the impending record, he said that the “next record will come out sooner” and that “we have a bunch of songs and we’ll probably rework them. They are good—they’re just not finished. We might put out something really strange next.”
Reassurance for those who had to wait so long for the follow-up to 2007’s We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank.
