MGMT performed their new track 'Your Life Is A Lie' on last night's (August 22) Late Show With David Letterman.

The band appeared on the popular US chat show to showcase their new single for the first time on TV. You can watch the band's full performance of the song by scrolling down the page and clicking 'play'.

Earlier this month, MGMT revealed the surreal video for new single 'Your Life Is A Lie'. In the video the band are joined by a number of different characters including a choir of skeletons, actor Henry Winkler consoling a young girl – and a crying pebble. The track is taken from the band's forthcoming, self-titled third album, due for release in September.

Speaking about 'MGMT' earlier this year, the band stated that the album is "less distraught, nervous and paranoid" than 2010's 'Congratulations'. The New York duo, Andrew Van Wyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, discussed feeling "more at ease" with themselves as a band than they did three years ago. VanWyngarden said: "We’re feeling a little bit more at ease and ready to take whatever comes our way. First and foremost we feel like we’ve made a really good album that reflects who we are right now, which is a little bit less distraught, nervous and paranoid than we were three years ago. For lots of different reasons, 2010 was a wild ride for us."

MGMT will tour the UK later this year, playing four dates in October including a gig at London's Forum.

MGMT will play:

Glasgow ABC1 (October 12)
Wolverhampton Civic (13)
Manchester O2 Apollo (14)
London Forum (16)
