Modest Mouse have already put out three songs from their upcoming Strangers to Ourselves LP (due 3/17 via Epic), and today brings a fourth, "The Ground Walks, With Time in a Box." The first three have all sounded different, and the same is true for this new one. The production here may be cleaner than their earlier albums, but this song proves that they haven't forgotten how to be genuinely weird. Listen below.

Also, in case you missed it last time, it was revealed that Shins frontman James Mercer, and members of Grandaddy, Man Man, Red Red Meat, Cold War Kids, and more appear on the new album.
