Ok, so it’s not entirely new – the band did play it at Letterman a while ago, but from a release standpoint, “Satellite Skin” is brand new. On May 26th, Modest Mouse will release the song and another previously unreleased selection, “Guilty Cocker Spaniels”, as a limited-edition 7″ single and as a digitial download on iTunes.
Ahead of the release, Isaac and Co. are currently streaming “Satellite Skin” on their MySpace, so do yourself a favor and go check it out. It’s a nice end-your-workday song.
As for what else is on the Modest Mouse agenda in the coming months? Well, a new EP is supposedly in the works, as is a Tom Peloso solo album. And then, there’s an appearance at Bumbershoot in September.
Good times, with or without Johnny Marr.
