Another new single has been released from Unknown Mortal Orchestra‘s forthcoming album Multi-Love. The album is the follow up to their fantastic 2013 release II, and is said to be delving further into the roots of psych rock, but also encompassing some sentimentality from the bonds of the band.
These news songs are said to “channel the spirit of psych innovators without ignoring the last 40 years of music, forming a flowing, cohesive whole that reflects restless creativity.” The new material is said to be from frontman Ruban Nielson reflecting “on relationships: airy, humid longing, loss, the geometry of desire that occurs when three people align. Where he addressed the pain of being alone on II, Multi-Love takes on the complications of being together.”
The latest release is titled Can’t Keep Checking My Phone is a funky, psych dream about the absolute need for people to remain connected via technology. You can stream the track below, and join us waiting very impatiently for May 20 when Multi-Love is to be released, via Jagjaguwar.
