Unknown Mortal Orchestra Addresses Societal Corruption in New Song, “First World Problem”

Listen to their first release since 2015’s 'Multi-Love.'

American and New Zealand outfit Unknown Mortal Orchestra have returned with a brand new song. “First World Problem” is the group’s first release since their acclaimed 2015 album Multi-Love. “I think “First World Problem” is about modern love in a crumbling empire,” frontman Ruban Nielson revealed in a press release. “The feeling that you’re trying to build your life and get what you need while a decadent world falls apart around you.” Listen to the track and check out the band’s touring schedule below.
