Unknown Mortal Orchestra have shared a brand new single. “That Life” arrives with a music video directed by Lydia Fine and Tony Blahd, and stars a dancing blue puppet created by puppeteer and fabricator Laura Manns (The Muppets and Sesame Street). Check it out below via Jagjaguwar.

Of “That Life,” Unknown Mortal Orchestra mastermind Ruban Nielson said in a press release:

I saw this painting by Hieronymus Bosch called The Garden of Earthly Delights and in the painting there was a mixture of crazy stuff going on, representing heaven, earth, and hell. When I was writing this song, “That Life,” I was imaging the same kind of “Where’s Waldo” (or “Where’s Wally” as we call it in New Zealand, Australia, and the UK) of contrasting scenes and multiple characters all engaged in that same perverse mixture of luxury, reverie, damnation, in the landscape of America. Somewhere on holiday under a vengeful sun.

“That Life” follows June’s “Weekend Run,” which marked UMO’s first proper single since issuing Sex & Food in 2018. After releasing that LP, UMO shared IC-01 Hanoi, which sprung from the Sex & Food sessions. Nielson also worked with Free Nationals and Daniel Caesar, and remixed Westerman and Soccer Mommy singles.
