Unknown Mortal Orchestra "First World Problem"

Unknown Mortal Orchestra "First World Problem"
Not far removed from the release of last year's Multi-LoveUnknown Mortal Orchestra have shared a new track titled "First World Problem."

Premiered on Annie Mac's BBC Radio show this afternoon, the new original cut was recorded back in March while the band were on a break from touring. The upbeat tune features a hooky chorus with a hint of disco influence.

"I think 'First World Problem' is about modern love in a crumbling empire," the band's Ruban Nielson said in a statement. "The feeling that you're trying to build your life and get what you need while a decadent world falls apart around you."
