It follows the release of June single ‘Weekend Run’.

After returning with ‘Weekend Run’ back in June, marking their first single since 2018 album ‘Sex & Food’, Unknown Mortal Orchestra are continuing to tease new music, sharing new track ‘That Life’.

Accompanied by a video directed by Lydia Fine and Tony Blahd and featuring a puppet and set created by renowned Daytime Emmy Award-nominated puppeteer and fabricator Laura Manns, frontman Ruban Nielson says, “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.”
