Following recent trends, Modest Mouse opted to forego announcing the album by traditional means. Instead, the info was sent to a few lucky fans along with a 45 rpm of Lampshades on Fire.
The note that was sent with the package read:
"We want you to have this limited test pressing of our new single 'Lampshades On Fire.' The song will be available for purchase tomorrow, Tuesday, December 16. 'Lampshades on Fire' is the first single from our new album Strangers to Ourselves, which will be released on Tuesday, March 3, 2015."Not much else is known about Strangers except that both OutKast's Big Boi and Nirvana's Krist Novoselic were involved, though it's unclear whether those collaborations will make it on the record. Other new songs added to Modest Mouse's live repertoire include; "Ansel," "Shit In Your Cut," "Sugar Boats" and "Be Brave"
