Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Multi-Love: Exclusive album stream

Have a listen to Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s futurist third album ahead of release and let us know your thoughts

For Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s third album, bandleader Ruban Nielson decided to do things a bit differently. We’re not just talking about the music, although the psychedelic synths and re-imagining of 60s and 70s soul music certainly feel fresh. No, we’re talking about the relationship that inspired it – during the making of the album, Nielson and his wife both fell in love with another woman, who moved in with the couple before leaving them both confused and heartbroken.

That unique experience is poured into Multi-Love, only to be decorated with a futurist, technicolour pop palette. Have a listen using the player below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.

You can pre-order Multi-Love from iTunes now.
