With a bolstered sound that incorporates funk-infused synths and emotionally charged lyrics, Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s third album, Multi-Love, is their strongest to date. Now, the band is proud to share a brand new video for the track “Ur Life One Night” (premiered on Rolling Stone), featuring a vast and kaleidoscopic collection of stories, colors, and visual effects. Director Manoj Leonel Jahson sought out inspiration in Traditional Asian Art through the incorporation of Mughai-era miniature paintings and more. Here is what he had to say about the film:

“When we first spoke with UMO, the idea of creating something abstract yet fun, for their single ‘Ur Life, One Night’ sounded very exciting. I am deeply inspired by the quirky Indian magical-realism from our mythology and wanted to create something rooted but still visually appealing. The music lent a dream-like quality and the lyric pushed us to the motif of the Goddess being pursued, yet always being out of reach.”

After being praised as a standout performance at Bonnaroo and touring all through May and June, have UMO return to the road with performances across the U.S. and Europe. Upcoming tour dates include a stops at Austin City Limits, Outside Lands, and FYF festivals. Multi-Love is out now via Jagjaguwar. All tour dates are below.
