Add another to the growing list of ‘albums to look forward to’ in 2013. In the next issue of Rolling Stone, MGMT announce that their next effort will be released this year, most likely June, on Columbia Records. Unlike their last, Congratulations, the duo (Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser) recorded without a band. They made their home a cabin outside of Buffalo, NY and according to RS highlights include “Mystery Disease” and “Alien Days” – which VanWyngarden explains is “about that feeling when a parasitic alien is in your head, controlling things.” They also recorded a version of “Introspection,” a mega-obscure Sixties garage rocker by the Long Island cult band Faine Jade. Check out a live video of “Alien Days” after the jump.
“We’re not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it,” Goldwasser, MGMT
