MGMT Releasing Congratulations

Columbia Records proudly announces the North American release of Congratulations, the keenly awaited new studio album from MGMT, on Tuesday, April 13.  Congratulations is a collection of nine tracks sequenced to flow with sonic and thematic coherence:  "It's Working," "Song for Dan Treacy," "Someone's Missing," "Flash Delirium," "I Found a Whistle," "Siberian Breaks,""Brian Eno," "Lady Dada's Nightmare," and "Congratulations." Produced by MGMT and Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, E.A.R., Spectrum), Congratulations was recorded throughout 2009 in upstate New York, Malibu, and Brooklyn and features Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, MGMT's core duo, performing with Matt Asti (bass, backing vocals), Will Berman (drums, backing vocals), and James Richardson (guitar, backing vocals), the band's live line-up.  Congratulations offered MGMT the opportunity to work with a couple of their musical idols and influences including album co-producer Sonic Boom (Pete Kember) and Royal Trux front-woman Jennifer Herrema, who contributed guest vocals.  "We've been lucky enough to meet and work with some of our all-time musical heroes," Andrew says, marveling at MGMT's good collaborative karma.  "It's so great to be around such amazing and unusual musical minds."
