New Zealand-born/Portland-based Unknown Mortal Orchestra (mainly the project of Ruban Nielson) released a new album, Sex & Food, back in April via Jagjaguwar. Now they have announced another new 2018 album, IC-01 Hanoi, and shared a track from it, the nine-minute long "Hanoi 06." The album was recorded in the Vietnamese city of Hanoi, hence its title, and is an instrumental album. Check out "Hanoi 06" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as the band's upcoming tour dates.

The album was recorded during the sessions for Sex & Food, when they were recording at Hanoi's Phu Sa Studios. As well as featuring Ruban Nielson, his longtime collaborator Jacob Portrait, and his brother Kody Nielson, the sessions included local musician Minh Nguyen (on Sáo Trúc, Đàn Môi, and Vietnamese percussion) and Nielson's father, Chris (on Flugelhorn, saxophone, and keyboards). 

A press release compares the album to Miles Davis' experimental 1972 album On the Corner.
