After keeping a fairly low profile for the better part of last year, rockers MGMT have announced that they are planning their return. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the duo of Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser stated that they are readying their third studio album and hope to release it this June.
The band spent most of 2012 upstate recording the record, which they state is comprised of both free-form jam tracks and electronic productions that reflect the Apex Twins and house records they had been listening to frequently. When asked more about the sound of the upcoming album Goldwasser replied “We’re not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it.” Continued VanWyngarden, “There’s no illusion on [record label Columbia’s] part that we’re going to turn into a Top 40 band.”
Yep. Let’s get weird, June.
