MGMT have debuted a brand new song on their current tour of South America - scroll down and click below to watch fan footage of the band performing the track, titled 'Alien Days'.

The group unveiled the song during their slot at Colombia's Festival Estereo Picnic on Friday (March 30), where they also played songs such as 'Kids' and 'Time To Pretend'.

The band have recently been working on their third album, slated to be titled 'MGMT', with producer Dave Fridmann at his Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, Florida.

In an interview with Intercourse Magazine, frontman Andrew VanWyngarden said he had written five songs for the album, which will be the follow-up to 2010's 'Congratulations'.

The band are due to continue their South American tour with a slot at Quilmes Rock 2012 festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Tuesday (April 3), before playing dates in Brazil, Mexico and Puerto Rico later in the month.

'Congratulations' saw the band take a step back from the mainstream after they scored hit singles with 'Time To Pretend' and 'Kids' from their 2008 debut 'Oracular Spectacular'.

Speaking to NME about the experimental approach to the album, VanWyngarden said: "It would be wrong to say that we ever had pure intentions of being a mainstream band. We began to realise that people thought of us as this electro-pop dance act. And that's really not who we are."
