Moonface (aka Canadian musician Spencer Krug from Wolf Parade, among other bands) has teamed up with Finish band Siinai again for a new album, My Best Human Face, which is due out June 3 on Jagjaguwar. Now they have shared another song from the album, "Them Call Themselves Old Punks." Listen below.

It follows the first single from the album, "Risto's Riff." Moonface and Siinai previously collaborated on the 2012 album Heartbreaking Bravery.

Krug recently commented on the album in a press release, explaining: "I called this thing My Best Human Face not only because that's one of my favorite lines on the album, but because I sometimes don't know who I am, or if I'm as kind and generous and happy as other people. The title speaks to the vague theme of identity-confusion that is loosely woven into the songs - a reoccurring theme I recognized only after the writing was done. It's a confusion which I think exists for most of us, sure, but that doesn't mean it has to be the campfire in the middle of our circle; we don't have to stare into the flames. It's simply not that important. At end of it all, these are good-time songs, meant to inspire good times in the listener. They were made joyously, with a stubborn love of music at their centre. And while some of the content might be dark or sad, the memories of making these songs brings only gladness and gratitude, and it's their construction, not deconstruction, that I want to celebrate now."
