UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA SHARE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “HUNNYBEE” 

TAKEN FROM THEIR ALBUM, SEX & FOOD, OUT NOW VIA JAGJAGUWAR

ANNOUNCE UK TOUR DATES FOR NOVEMBER 2018

“impressive” – Uncut (9/10)
“tremendous” – MOJO (4*)
“terrific stuff” – The Guardian (4*)
“beguiling” – Q
“A slick trip bursting with earworming indie-funk bravura” – Loud & Quiet: 9/10

Today, Unknown Mortal Orchestra share a new video for album track and single “Hunnybee.” From the day their new album Sex & Food was released, it was clear that this beautifully understated song was really hitting a chord with fans in a special way. A live show favorite, the song draws lyrical inspiration from UMO mastermind Ruban Nielson‘s daughter, whose middle name gave the song its title. The video remains stylistically in tune with previous videos for Sex & Food‘s previous singles “Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays” and “American Guilt.” Watch it below.

Following a UK tour which included a mind-blowing sold out set at London’s The Roundhouse, Unknown Mortal Orchestra today announce further UK and Irish shows for November 2018. As well as the previously announced date at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall on the 21st, the tour will now call at dates in Birmingham, Brighton, Sheffield, Dublin and Glasgow. Full dates are listed below with UK shows in bold.
