Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Not in Love We’re Just High”

Per the official press release:

Today, Unknown Mortal Orchestra shares “Not In Love We’re Just High,” the newest song off their forthcoming album Sex & Food (out 4/6 on Jagjaguwar). The song examines relational confusion induced by drugs (or simply mania). The couple at the center of the song realize that they’re not actually in love, they are indeed simply high, and how a realization that may seem sad on its surface could actually be quite liberating and euphoric. The tension of the song’s chaotic introduction is given relief by the gorgeous repeated Wurlitzer chords that make up the backbone of the song. The song’s steady build adds to the ecstatic feeling of liberation born from this epiphany. Beats 1 World Record premiered the song earlier today. Watch the accompanying visual below, and revisit the album’s first single, “American Guilt.”
