Listen: MGMT’s New Song “Alien Days”

This is a nice surprise. MGMT has posted a YouTube stream of a new song called “Alien Days” (likely to celebrate 4/20). They’ve played the song live recently in their one-off shows, but this is the first studio-MGMT we’ve heard since the band’s 2010 sophomore album Congratulations. The song stays in the vein set by their last album, happily embracing psychedelics rather than their initial pop muse. The band’s third album MGMT is expected to be released this year.

UPDATE: Sloppy news. The track was initially released today on cassette for Record Store Day. Shame on me for assuming everything to do with MGMT is about drugs.

Check out the strange new transmission below.
