MGMT have shared a picture of their pet cat after it heard their new songs for the first time online this week.

The band posted the picture you can see above along with the message "This tiny kitten has just heard new MGMT songs" on their official Twitter page. The unnamed cat appeared unimpressed, if not a little scared, by what he heard leading fans to believe the New York band's new material may have gone further down the psychedelic route taken on their last album, 2010's 'Congratulations'.

It appears that MGMT have recently entered the studio to begin recording again with all of their recent tweets being on the subject of making a new album. Posting on January 13 they wrote: "We are doing something really exciting right now", while another post on the same day states: "In the studio... there's another type of Kat. Whatcha think about that?".

Any new album from MGMT, duo Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, could include the song 'Alien Days' which they debuted at a live show in April 2012.

MGMT's only release since 'Congratulations' came as part of the latest album from upstate New York-based poet and singer-songwriter Cheval Sombre in 2012. 'Mad Love' was released in November via Sonic Cathedral and also featured guest appearances from former Spacemen 3 man Sonic Boom and Dean Wareham of Galaxie 500/Luna.
