Watch: MGMT’s Stop-Motion Promo Video For “Alien Days,” Their Record Store Day Cassette Single
Available April 20
This weekend on Record Store Day MGMT will release a special cassette single featuring an unreleased track called "Alien Days." To promote the new track Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden have premiered a psychedelic clip featuring stop-motion and sock puppets. While you could just write off the 50-second clip as a bizarre advertisement, it wouldn't be all that surprising to find out that this snippet of footage is actually part of a really strange but awesome music video scheduled for release down the road.
