In an interview with Spin, MGMT lead singer Andrew VanWyngarden announced that his band's sophomore album, Congratulations, is finished and in the can, and is due out this spring.
How's the new album coming?
It's mixed and mastered, and now we're just working on presenting it to the world. We spent all of last year working on it, and that's after a good long while touring behind the first record [2008's Oracular Spectacular], so it's definitely nice to be done.
What about Congratulations is really going to surprise people?
The honesty of it; it's very plaintive. In a weird way, it's like a soul record. That, and there's an instrumental track, the second to last song on the album, called "Lady Dada's Nightmare."
The interview only gets more obtuse after that, so go here to finish it up.
Anyways, new MGMT album due out this spring. Get ready people.
