MGMT announce Self Titled LP

MGMT Alien Days

It’s been a while since we’ve had some new material from MGMT and finally they’ve just announced they will be releasing a new self titled LP via Columbia on September 17th.

Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden recorded the album as a duo, at producer Dave Fridmann’s Tarbox Road Studios in upstate New York, rather than with a full band as they have in the past.

We’ve got their recent Record Store Day track “Alien Days” below for your listening pleasure, which will be on the album come fall, along with a video element using something called “the Optimizer” for tracks “Your Life Is A Lie,” “Alien Days,” and “Cool Song No.2”

Check out the album track list and forthcoming tour dates below.
