MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser are set to feature on the new album from upstate New York-based poet and singer-songwriter Cheval Sombre.

'Mad Love', is out on November 5 via Sonic Cathedral, and also features guest appearances from former Spacemen 3 man Sonic Boom and Dean Wareham of Galaxie 500/Luna.

Earlier this year MGMT debuted a brand new song on their tour of South America, called 'Alien Days'. The group unveiled the song during their slot at Colombia's Festival Estereo Picnic in March.

At the time, the band were 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'.

'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 their last 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."
