Unknown Mortal Orchestra has released the video for “Multi-Love,” along with a downloadable video-game app that coincides with the song. Multi-Love is also the name of Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s new album, due on Jagjaguwar on May 26.

“Multi-Love” begins with a Styx-like keyboard melody, then opens up into a full disco-tech beat and a killer pulsing drum line. The video features a multitude of psychedelic, fluorescent colors that constantly regenerate. Watch “Multi-Love” on Youtube.

Director Lionel Williams explains the app: “It is meant to represent the vacuum of space by impressing upon inter-dimensional unfolding, immaterial objects, and time-driven reverberation of events. The virtual space allows for most 3D objects to trail in time – based on the directions one moves. You can construct & paint the objects in space to stretch them in any direction, to create infinitely vast compositional spaces.”

Game instructions: W, A, S, and D keys move you around and your mouse/trackpad controls where you look. Download the “Multi-Love” app:

Check out their folksy video for “Swim and Sleep (Like A Shark)”: It’s got Pinocchio-like puppets that are sometimes doing unmentionable things.
