MGMT have offered up their new album 'Congratulations' as a free stream after it leaked online.

The Brooklyn band said that they had wanted to give away the album, out officially on April 12, as a free download. Instead they have made the stream available at their official website, Whoismgmt.com.

"Hey everybody, the album leaked, and we wanted you to be able to hear it from us," they wrote on the site. "We wanted to offer it as a free download but that didn't make sense to anyone but us."

Click on the We7 widget below to hear the album (users outside the UK can hear 30-second clips of each song).
