‘Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays’ is the third track to be released off the forthcoming album by Unknown Mortal Orchestra called ‘Sex & Food’, due out on 6 April. Unknown Mortal Orchestra is the work of artist Ruban Nielsen.

It is a funky disco-infused track from the New Zealander who is based in Portland, Oregon: smooth and silky and yet touched with a little wistfulness and yearning:

There is a little bit of Prince hidden in there. You can pre-order the album here.
