The Cribs have shared a new video for 'I Don’t Know Who I Am (Feat. Lee Ranaldo)'.

It's a track from the trio's new album. ‘Night Network’ will be released on 13th November; it was self-produced and recorded at the Foo Fighters' Studio 606 in Los Angeles in the spring/summer of 2019.

The band say of the track: "I Don't Know Who I Am (although ultimately quite different) came together in much the same way as Be Safe did back in 2006 - we had a recording of a long, improvised noise-jam which we then tried to refine into a more cohesive song structure. Due to the similarities in the writing process, it made us think of Lee again... we had initially requested that he play noise guitar over the track, because we wanted to keep it somewhat abstract and create the impression of the melodies just kind of emerging out of the static...but he went beyond the call of duty and also added some beautiful vocal harmonies too, out at the Sonic Youth studio in New Jersey.

"Working with Lee on Be Safe was without question one of the highlights of our career as a band, and we think that I Don't Know Who I Am is a worthy follow up collaboration. We are very proud of how it turned out.

"Lyrically, the song addresses the disconnect that Ryan and myself have always had with our biological paternal lineage - and how that may have shaped our views on masculinity, gender roles, and the men we ultimately grew up to be."

The Cribs have also booked in a few instores, catch them at the following:
