On Christmas Day 2015, MGMT announced that they were set to “re-dominate your mind hole” the following year. It took till September last year, though, for them to re-evaluate the arrival of their new album, tweeting “Meant to say MGMT re-dominates your mind hole in *2017.”
It seems like they’re keeping good on their promise this time, too, now sharing that they’ve finished recording their fourth album, the follow-up to their 2013 self-titled LP.
“Possibly just sang last singing for new album?! Title track”, the band tweeted over the weekend, after giving pretty much a running commentary of the recording and mixing process.
After we were left hanging for all of 2016 with no new MGMT material, it seems like this year is when they finally come good. Hold on to yer hats.
