Following their success from the first album from 2013 ‘MGMT’, MGMT has released a teaser trailer on Instagram to announce their upcoming album earlier this evening.
In the post, the band said, “We want you to be excited. Here’s a “making of” teaser video by @avidmacnutt to wet your whistles with audio visual scraps from the germination of the forthcoming album LITTLE DARK AGE”.
This confirmation comes after the band confirmed earlier last month that their new album is finished and set for release later this year. Earlier on Friday, the band release ‘Little Dark Age’ live at live at Beale Street Music Festival in Tennessee. As the band is set to perform at different events throughout the summer, more releases might be on their way before full album release.
Although the band was expect to return in 2016, no new material was released. Earlier last year, rumors started surfacing that Mac DeMarco would be collaborating MGMT in near future. DeMarco at the time said, “VanWyngarden lives in the same neighborhood 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?”
We will have to wait to see if we are in for a big surprise.
