Unknown Mortal Orchestra Announce New Album 'II,' Tour Dates

A month ago, Unknown Mortal Orchestra celebrated its signing to indie label Jagjaguwar with a new song called "Swim And Sleep (Like A Shark)." Now comes news that the Portland-via-New Zealand act have finished up their sophomore album, titled II, coming Feb. 5 of next year.

The new song's title is especially fitting because, according to a press release, UMO's mastermind Ruben Nielsen wrote the album "during a punishing, debauched touring schedule during which Nielson feared for both his sanity and health." He recruited a full-time band to flesh out the record, but it was still a home-recorded affair like their excelled 2011 self-titled debut. Below, check out the track list as well as upcoming tour dates.

II track list:

01 From the Sun
02 Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)
03 So Good at Being in Trouble
