MGMT to return with new track ‘Little Dark Age’ tomorrow

Hear some new music from MGMT

MGMT have confirmed that they will return with a new track this week. Hear a clip of the new music and lyrics below.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting news of the band’s long-awaited fourth album for some time. They last released their self-titled record in 2013, and earlier this summer said that the follow-up ‘Little Dark Age’ was ‘completely finished.

Now, it looks like the wait is finally over, after the band shared a short clip of new music – along with the caption #LittleDarkAge.

It has also been confirmed that the band’s new track ‘Little Dark Age’ will air in full on Beats 1 tomorrow (Tuesday, October 17).

In late 2016, the band promised fans that they would return in 2017 before clarifying in November that they intended to release new music “ASAP”. 

MGMT had been expected to return in 2016, after declaring on Christmas Day 2015 that they would “re-dominate your mind hole” the following year. However, no new material surfaced and the band later clarified: “Meant to say MGMT re-dominates your mind hole in 2017”.

Back in May 2016, Mac DeMarco responded to rumours that he would be collaborating with MGMT in the near future.

 DeMarco said: “[VanWyngarden] lives in the same neighbourhood as me, so we’re homies. I don’t know, maybe I should leave it as a mystery. I’m not recording on any MGMT albums, just my own record, but who knows?”
