MGMT new album?

8 May 2017 Music News

MGMT have confirmed that they will release a new album this year and that they’ll perform new music live during their upcoming tour.

The Connecticut outfit – whose primary members are Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser – have been busy working on the follow-up to their self-titled third album, which was released in 2013.

Late last year, the band promised fans that they would return in 2017 before clarifying in November that they intended to release new music “ASAP”. Then in April, the band confirmed that they had “finished” work on their next record.

Pitchfork now reports that the band have sent an email newsletter to fans, saying: “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!”
