Unknown Mortal Orchestra have just announced IC-01 Hanoi, their second new album of 2018, which will come out on October 26th.
The new instrumental LP was recorded at the Phù Sa Studio in Vietnam with local musician Minh Nguyen. Nguyen played multiple traditional Vietnamese instruments, and band member Ruban Nielson’s father Chris played flugelhorn, saxophone, and keyboards.
IC-01 Hanoi was created out of sessions for their fourth album Sex & Food, which they released in April.
Listen to the first released track off the new record, “Hanoi 6.”
