MGMT are back. “Little Dark Age”, the title track from the band’s upcoming fourth album, is a kind of dark song and the video, directed by Nathaniel Axel & David MacNutt, is weird like all MGMT’s videos.
As singer Andrew VanWyngarden told EW, “the lyrics are kind of about anxiety. But there’s also a current of the culture of crucifying and internet shaming”. In the article, written by Eric Renner Brown, VanWyngarden also explained what inspired the video, set in a haunted castle inhabited by weird and kind of funny people. As always, the musicians’s style is pretty interesting.
The album “Little Dark Age” is set to be release in early 2018.
