MULTI-LOVE WORLD TOUR CONTINUES

Today, Unknown Mortal Orchestra shared a new song called “First World Problem,” which was premiered on Annie Mac’s show on BBC Radio 1 moments ago.  The song was recorded in March while the band was on break from touring and is the first new original song to be shared by UMO since the release of the critically acclaimed Multi-Love.

 “I think ‘First World Problem’ is about modern love in a crumbling empire,” explains Ruban Nielson. “The feeling that you’re trying to build your life and get what you need while a decadent world falls apart around you.”
