[Watch] MGMT Share Absurd Video for New Single "Your Life Is A Lie"

Before their self-titled third album hits shelves in September, MGMT promised they would share three new songs and videos to whet our appetites. The first of those three has arrived. It comes in the form of "Your Life Is A Lie," which they started performing live earlier this year. The song is a two minute burst of psychedelia, full of distorted vocals, indulgent synths and plenty of cowbell. Its accompanying video is even more absurd. See for yourself below.

MGMT is out on September 17th.

[News] MGMT Announce New LP Tentatively Due in June

Spending the past year at producer Dave Fridmann's Tarbox Road Studios outside Buffalo, New York, MGMT have been hard at work on the follow-up to 2010's Congratulations. The duo, Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, recently spoke to Rolling Stone, where they revealed a tentative June release date for their third album.

When speaking on their sophomore album, VanWyngarden said, "[p]eople thought we took too many drugs, which was not the case at all. We were less naive after Congratulations." The mentalities they adopted after making Congratulations continue this time around, as the pair are recording the whole album themselves without the help of a full band. VanWyngarden and Goldwasser are picking the best aspects of their freeform jam sessions, which have apparently been inspired by Aphex Twin and other house artists.

Stay tuned to hear the fruits of their labor, but as the pair admits they are "not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it."
