Following the conclusion of their most recent tour, MGMT took to the Las Vegas stage to perform a special concert. The fans who made their way to the Pearl Concert Theatre at Palms Casino were treated to a brand new song, ‘In The Afternoon’.
The indie-electro pioneers were delivering a stellar performance when they produced the new track which marks the first new music since 2018’s Little Dark Age. Whenever a new song comes from an act like MGMT there will always be a furore over a possible new album. However, that might not be the case.
With reports of a beady-eyed Reddit user having found an old 2010 interview in which Andrew VanWyngarden talks to WFMU radio station. During the chat, he mentions that he had just finished a song called ‘In The Afternoon’.
So maybe this isn’t exactly hinting at a new LP but is, in fact, a wonderfully nurtured relic. Either way, it’s laid-back tone sounds pretty good to us on the night.
With a few more dates for the duo on the horizon, all eyes will be on MGMT to see if any more music surfaces. For now, though, we will still harbour hopes that there’s a new record just around the corner.
