Unknown Mortal Orchestra have unveiled new track "Meshuggah" as the final preview of their double album V before it lands in full on Friday.

"Meshuggah" will appear on Unknown Mortal Orchestra's new album with earlier releases "Nadja", "Layla", "I Killed Captain Cook", "That Life" and "Weekend Run" singles.

V will follow Unknown Mortal Orchestra's 2018 album Sex & Food.

Lead vocalist Ruban Nielson says of the album, which was created between Palm Springs, California and Hilo, Hawaii, "In Hawaii, everything shifted off of me and my music. Suddenly, I was spending more time figuring out what others need and what my role is within my family. I also learned that things I thought were true of myself are bigger than I thought. My way of making mischief - that’s not just me - that’s my whole Polynesian side. I thought I was walking away from music to focus on family, but the two ended up connecting."

"Meshuggah" is out now. Unknown Mortal Orchestra's V album will follow via Jagjaguwar this Friday, 17 March, and is available to pre-order now.
