MGMT, ‘MGMT’: Fall Music Preview 2013
Release Date: Sept. 17
MGMT’s self-titled third album reunited the New York group with producer Dave Fridmann. The overall idea was simple: “When we started writing and working on our new album, we set a few goals and guidelines to follow—mainly that there shouldn’t be any goals or guidelines,” singer Andrew VanWyngarden says. “Whatever came to us, if we felt inspired, we went with, and we did our best not to refuse any sort of style or musical idea.” The 10-track album was heralded by single “Your Life Is a Lie” and its eye-catchingly quirky video, which has garnered more than 2 million Vevo views since its Aug. 5 premiere.
