After returning last month to deliver their brilliant comeback single 'Weekend Run', Unknown Mortal Orchestra are back once again to deliver their next vibrant cut.
The new single 'That Life' marks their second piece of original material since the 2018 LP 'Sex & Food', and comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Lydia Fine and Tony Blahd and features a puppet and an immaculately constructed set created by renowned Daytime Emmy Award-nominated puppeteer and fabricator Laura Manns, who is best known for her work on The Muppets and Sesame Street.
Speaking about the new offering, frontman Ruban Nielson said, "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."
