Modest Mouse/Built to Spill covers album in the works?

Modest Mouse's publicist has stated, although the project is not yet 100% confirmed, that the band want to work on a covers album with Built To Spill and Love As Laughter, where all 3 bands cover each other's material.

Modest Mouse to work on new material

Johnny Marr gave a telephone interview with CBC today, in which he mainly discussed how he would be handling his duties as a professor at Salford University in Manchester, a position that he was recently honored with. Johnny did however also mention, that Modest Mouse will begin working on new material, starting in February 2008. He did not say if this work would be going towards a new album or if it was for the EP that Isaac and Eric have talked about.
