Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Swing Lo Magellan (Dirty Projectors Cover)”

If you still haven’t listened to Unknown Mortal Orchestra‘s II from earlier this year, you’re doing it wrong. But lucky for you, they’ll be releasing an acoustic EP that will feature three unplugged versions of songs from II, and two covers. One of these covers is Dirty Projectors’ “Swing Lo Magellan,” which was shared today, and UMO mellows out the single, rendering a beautiful acoustic take on a song that dominated 2012. The band’s forthcoming Blue Record will be released on October 29. Stream the cover below.
