Uknown Mortal Orchestra will release a new album this spring.

'Sex & Food' will arrive on April 6 through Jagjaguwar and follow up 'Multi-Love'. It was recorded in a number of locations, including Seoul, Hanoi, Reykjavik, Mexico City,  Auckland, and Ruban Nielson's home studio in Portland.

Head below to watch the video for the band's new single, American Guilt. Speaking about it, guitarist and songwriter Neilson said:

"American Guilt is an attempt to capture some of the feelings floating around these days. In a perverse way I wanted to embrace this abandoned genre of rock music that I keep reading is "dead" and invite people to hear what this living dead genre sounds like in the UMO universe. It was recorded in Hanoi, Vietnam during monsoon season in a studio built for traditional Vietnamese music. Additional recording was done in Mexico City but our sessions were interrupted by one of the devastating earthquakes that occurred there last year. As we slept in the Parque de Mexico, unable to get back to our Air BnB, we heard a man yell "Viva la Mexico!" and I put this in the song out of respect for them."

Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Sex & Food (Album Review)
Wed 18 Apr 2018
Photo: Neil Krug A simple glance at the tracklisting would lead you to think that ‘Sex & Food’, the fourth album by Unknown Mortal Orchestra, is intently focused on the political context in which it was born. Ours is a world of technological turmoil and political pandemonium, and more than half of the song titles here scream of a critical appraisal of our current climate.

Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.

It can sometimes be difficult for an artist to capture the zeitgeist. Even if they know what to say, they often struggle to find the right way to say it. Not so for Matt Healy and his 1975, who haven’t just captured the zeitgeist—they’ve wrestled it into submission, stuffed it in a cage and made it perform tricks for our amusement.
