MGMT Shares Chill New Single “Hand It Over” Ahead Of Forthcoming Album

mgmt hand it over

Psychedelic indie rock group MGMT kicked off 2018 today with a laidback new single titled “Hand It Over.” The song follows the releases of “When You Die” and “Little Dark Age,” the first tracks from the band in four years and the first two singles off their forthcoming album, Little Dark Age, set to drop in the next month or so. 

While the previous two singles showcased a dark new direction for MGMT, “Hand It Over” dials it back to a subdued, dreamy signature reminiscent of the group’s 2010 project Congratulations. The track creates an inviting overall vibe with gentle percussion, warm guitar plucks, faint bass and airy vocal harmonies. Check out the single below and enjoy!

MGMT Shares Psychedelic New Single “When You Die” + Trippy Video

MGMT When You Die

MGMT keeps the new music coming today with psychedelic single “When You Die.” The surreal track follows October’s release of “Little Dark Age,” the first new song in four years from the group and the title track from their forthcoming album, set to drop sometime in early 2018. 

“When You Die” maintains a similar darkness to MGMT’s previous single, showcasing a compelling growth from the group. Although the mood of the release appears light with breezy guitar plucks and bouncy percussion, MGMT’s iconic faraway-esque vocals coupled with downright ominous lyrics add a grim new dimension. Similar to “Little Dark Age,” this single also comes with a ridiculously trippy video counterpart with some must-see (albeit a bit gruesome) visual effects about, you guessed it, what happens when you die. Check out both below and enjoy!

MGMT Shares Haunting New Single “Little Dark Age” Off Forthcoming Album + Video


After a four-year hiatus that felt like an eternity for many, psychedelic rock group MGMT is finally back with new music. The track, “Little Dark Age,” is the first off of the band’s forthcoming album by the same name, set to drop sometime in early 2018.  

There are many elements to “Little Dark Age” that bring the familiar MGMT signature to mind – VanWyngarden’s iconic vocals, the psychedelic synth melodies and the many moving parts of the track, to name a few. Yet, “Little Dark Age” has a moodiness to it that we haven’t heard from the group before, with the track pulling from both upbeat and ominous places to create something entirely new and unique for the group. In addition to the song, the group shared a bizarre video for “Little Dark Age” that really drives the somber mood of the release home. Check both out below and enjoy!
