MGMT have revealed new song ‘Your Life Is A Lie’, complete with a bizarre music video.
The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming and self-titled third album, due for release in September, and is the first new track fans have heard since ‘Alien Days’ was revealed in April. In the video for ‘Your Life Is A Lie’, 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. Scroll up to watch the video now.
Speaking about ‘MGMT’ earlier this year, the band stated that their forthcoming third studio album is “less distraught, nervous and paranoid” than their 2010 album ‘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 says: “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)
