Modest Mouse just released the second teaser from the forthcoming Strangers To Ourselves, which is accompanied by a heartwarming video featuring the world’s cutest coyote.
“Coyotes” recalls fan-favorite “Wild Pack of Family Dogs” in its largely acoustic surroundings, while matching the scope of Isaac Brock’s work on the 180 South soundtrack. What begins simply with Brock and an acoustic guitar builds to a soaring, beautiful climax, aided by a blurry, swirling chorus that gives the song a human core. “Mankind’s behaved like some real serial-killers,” Brock sings on the chorus. Consider this his plea for forgiveness.
Watch the incredible video over at Interstate-8. The track will be available to download at digital retailers beginning 20 January.
Strangers To Ourselves is out 3 March through Epic.
