We’re more than a decade removed from Oracular Spectacular, the breakout 2007 debut album from indie/rock band MGMT — and they’re still at it, but this time as a fully independent unit for the first time in the duo’s history.

On Wednesday, MGMT premiered a new song, “In the Afternoon,” as part of a limited edition 12″ vinyl single with another track titled “As You Move Through the Afternoon.”

Hi Friends, Here are two new things we recorded in November 2019, “In The Afternoon” and “As You Move Through The World.” This is the first ever totally independent release for MGMT. A d.i.y. affair all the way down to the video! As usual and by design these songs may discompose emotionally sensitive constitutions. Please consume with caution. You can enjoy “In The Afternoon” either by listening or watching the video. Both songs will appear on a limited edition 12” single which you can pre-order today! This 12” single is only available via MGMT’s online store and will NOT be available at retail. Pre-ordering the 12” will give you an instant digital download of “In The Afternoon” and a download of “As You Move Through The World” when the 12” arrives in late March 2020 (estimated delivery). There is also an exclusive t-shirt available with purchase of the 12” single. All links in our bio! love and kittens, MGMT

Stay tuned — MGMT’s music was always rather enigmatic, even despite the success of singles “Kids” and “Time to Pretend,” but now that they’re fully independent and can do whatever they want? The possibilities are endless.
