Unknown Mortal Orchestra share new song “Not in Love We’re Just High”: Stream

on February 27, 2018, 12:23pm

In April, Unknown Mortal Orchestra will return with Sex & Food, the follow-up to their excellent 2015 album, Multi-Love. Today, the psych rockers shared the latest single, “Not in Love We’re Just High”.

In an interview with Zane Lowe, songwriter and frontman Ruban Nielson said the song was written in Iceland, which he considers “an upside-down” version of his native New Zealand. He described the track as his attempt to write a UMO version of an Adele piano ballad. Hear it below.

Sex & Food arrives April 6th via Jagjaguwar and attempts to seek out “positivity despite the strangeness of our times.” UMO previously shared the album’s lead single, “American Guilt”. Pre-orders are ongoing here.

UMO has mapped an upcoming tour in support of the release, including festival appearances at Primavera Sound in Barcelona and The Netherlands’ Best Kept Secret. Check out the complete itinerary below.
