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.
And, on May 7th, the band announced that they would end a four-year hiatus by releasing an upcoming album titled Little Dark Age, and the ramping up of excitement isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
A recent email newsletter to fans, 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!”
Now, the band have shared an image of their mastered record, much to the delight of their fans:
