Unknown Mortal Orchestra Announce New Album ‘Multi-Love’ and Tour, Share New Track


Indie rock psych group Unknown Mortal Orchestra are back with a brand new album, Multi-Love, due out May 26 via Jagjaguwar. If you keep close eyes on our Best Of Lists for the end of the year, then you know this one has been highly anticipated. The album serves as a follow-up to 2013’s II. They have shared the title track which sees the band expanding their sound to include more electronics and toy with spacial depth. Give it a listen after the jump and see their new tour dates.

The album cover shows their equipment used on Multi-Love. In a press release, frontman Ruban Nielson said this album saw a lot of gear work happen behind the scenes:

It felt good to be rebelling against the typical view of what an artist is today, a curator. It’s more about being someone who makes things happen in concrete ways. Building old synthesizers and bringing them back to life, creating sounds that aren’t quite like anyone else’s. I think that’s much more subversive.
