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!
