The new Unknown Mortal Orchestra album is out on Friday.

A final preview of Unknown Mortal Orchestra‘s V record has been shared ahead of its release later this week.

Meshuggah is one of those tracks displaying the the west coast and Hapa-haole sounds soaked up by Ruban Nielson during his stays in California and Hawaii.

“In Hawaii, everything shifted off of me and my music,” Nielson said. “Suddenly, I was spending more time figuring out what others need and what my role is within my family.”

I also learned that things I thought were true of myself are bigger than I thought. My way of making mischief – that’s not just me – that’s my whole Polynesian side. I thought I was walking away from music to focus on family, but the two ended up connecting.
