Unknown Mortal Orchestra expand tour, cover Otis Redding

by Bill Pearis

UMO

As mentioned, Unknown Mortal Orchestra are going on a tour which hits NYC on for a free Seaport Music Festival show on June 28 with tourmates Bass Drum of Death.

That tour kicks off tomorrow in Bellingham Washington and to commemorate their impending trek, UMO have recorded a cover of Otis Redding’s classic “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” which was recorded live for BBC 6Music. With their sound already being fairly retro in vibe, the cover is not too far from the original but may help remove any remaining flashbacks to Michael Bolton’s version from the ’80s. (If you had forgotten it, sorry to bring it up.) You can stream it, along with UMO’s recently-expanded tour schedule, below.
