Unknown Mortal Orchestra preview next album with rowdy new single "American Guilt"

23 January 2018, 13:00 | Written by Laurence Day

Unknown Mortal Orchestra are back with raucous new tune "American Guilt", the first taste of a new record from the Ruban Nielson-led outfit.

Rumours of the new LP surfaced this week after the band teased something on Instagram, and some eagle-eyed fans noted that a new release titled Sex & Food was in the works. As Beats 1's Matt Wilkinson confirmed, there is much more to come from UMO this year:

The band's new offering comes shortly after Unknown Mortal Orchestra's annual Christmas mega-jam (this one stretched to a hefty 28 minutes). Any new release would follow 2015 LP Multi-Love.

As well as the new noises, Unknown Mortal Orchestra have announced a new run of tour dates across Europe and North America, including a handful in the UK in May.

Tickets for the upcoming shows are on sale from 26 January. Find out more.
