Unknown Mortal Orchestra have shared new single and music video, "I Killed Captain Cook." The song meshes a throwback sound with more modern folk, with solo acoustic guitar and Ruban Nielson's classically raspy voice. The music video, filmed and directed by Ruban, is an apt companion. It features Ruban's mother, Deedee Aipolani Nielson, -- a Kanaka Maoli from Hilo and Miss Aloha Hula 1973 -- dancing in front of the ocean. The song's fantastical lyrics perfectly suit the dreamy video. Watch it below.

"I Killed Captain Cook" is UMO's first release since 2021 standalone singles "That Life" and "Weekend Run." and is the first taste of a new double album that's due in 2023. They've also just announced their first tour in four years. The North American leg kicks off in March 2023, and the UK leg runs from late May through June. All dates below.

The tour includes two NYC shows on April 13 and 14 at Webster Hall. Tickets for all dates are on sale Friday, October 28  at 10 AM local time.
