MGMT, the American pop-psyche band who formed in 2002, have announced that they will release a new album this year.
Building on the success of 2007’s Oracular Spectacular debut record which was followed by Congratulations in 2010, MGMT have been quiet since the release of their last full length, the self-titled work of 2013.
However, in an email newsletter to fans, the duo of Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser revealed plans to play new music in their upcoming live shows:
“Incredibly soon we will get back up on the horse of live music in Memphis. And from atop this great horse we will play old songs and new songs. New songs from our new album that you will newly hear this year!”
MGMT will play a series of shows in 2017, which you can see here:
