“Of Course We Know,” the latest single we’ve heard from Modest Mouse’s forthcoming album Strangers To Ourselves, is the band at its most epic. It’s a slow-burning psychedelic track with more than a bit of Ennio Morricone in it, and it might be the best of the album tracks we’ve yet heard. Strangers To Ourselves comes out in a couple of weeks, and we’ve already heard the early songs “Coyotes,” “Lampshades On Fire,” “The Best Room,” and “The Ground Walks, With Time In A Box.” “Of Course We Know” is the final song on the album, and it’s tough to imagine anything following it. Listen to it below.
Strangers To Ourselves is out 3/17 on Epic.
