Unknown Mortal Orchestra have unveiled their first original song since the release of their highly-regarded record Multi-Love. Titled 'First World Problem' the track is about "modern love in a crumbling empire', according to frontman Ruban Nielson, who elaborates that it's "the feeling that you're trying to build your life and get what you need while a decadent world falls apart around you." Take a listen below...



Here's the lyrics:

When I woke
I found my phone in the bed clothes
and the curtain glowed crimson through the window
To think of her was to want her
Would you want me too?

She's got it all and yet
She's betting all she has on a first world problem
You've got to understand
That I could be your man or a first world problem

I know that I was better as a loser
She's eating birthday cake inside the disco
I may be lost but I'm a lost man
In love with you

She's got it all and yet
She's betting all she has on a first world problem
You've got to understand
That I could be your man or a first world problem
