MGMT have released the title track for their long-awaited new album with the single “Little Dark Age.” The song “Little Dark Age” was born out of a spring 2017 studio session, following a year spent writing and recording material in New York and Los Angeles. The track is accompanied by a shadowy, cinematic music video featuring sinister and surreal vignettes of members Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser dressed in flamboyant gothic attire, stalked by the figure of Death. Watch the video, directed by David MacNutt and Nathaniel Axel below…

The band spoke to Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 show this morning, where they talked about the process of creating the song on different coasts, “we felt like we had reached a flow, it was the sort of chemistry, the kind of magic feeling we had when we started the band.”

The group’s fourth album is due to be released in early 2018 and was produced by MGMT, Patrick Wimberly (Chairlift, Kelela, Blood Orange), and long-time collaborator Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Spoon, Tame Impala). Earlier this year the band announced via Twitter their new album would be titled Little Dark Age, later releasing in-studio visuals and snippets of music via Instagram. MGMT has incorporated songs from the upcoming release into their live show at festivals across North America throughout 2017.
