MGMT have announced details of their new album 'MGMT', due for release on September 17.

The self-titled album will be the follow up to 2010 album 'Congratulations' and features 'Mystery Disease', first played live earlier this year. The album will be accompanied by The Optimizer, "unique visual elements to accompany and illustrate the new music, which provide listeners of the album "with a simultaneous aural and optical listening experience featuring video and CGI work."

'MGMT' also includes 'Alien Days', which was appeared online released as a cassette single for Record Store Day on April 20. Talking about the track, the band's Andrew VanWyngarden said it was about "that feeling when a parasitic alien is in your head, controlling things".

Speaking about the record, Ben Goldwasser of the band has revealed: "We're not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it."

'MGMT''s tracklisting is as follows:

'Alien Days'
'Cool Song No 2'
'Mystery Disease'
'Introspection'
'Your Life Is a Lie'
'A Good Sadness'
'Astro-Mancy'
'I Love You to Death'
'Plenty Of Girls in the Sea'
'An Orphan of Fortune'
