Umbrella Mistress is the thirty-first studio album by Omar Rodríguez-López as a solo artist, released on 9 September 2016. It is his fifth release in the 12 album series initiated by Ipecac Recordings.[1]

"Tell Me What I Did Wrong" was uploaded in advance as the album's single.


"Through Wires" first appeared on the 2012 album Saber, Querer, Osar y Callar as "Fear Eats The Soul" with a slightly extended version.

"Winter's Gone" is a full-band recording of a song that was first released through Bandcamp on February 24, 2014 a single offering from the newly announced Nadie Sound label; the track served as Omar's first solo output in nearly a year since ¿Sólo Extraño? had been released on March 8, 2013. This song, as well as several others, features Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes, Bosnian Rainbows) on backing vocals.

"Eastern Promises" borrows its name from a 2007 film by David Cronenberg, whom Rodriguez-Lopez frequenly mentioned as an influence.
