Psycho synth-rockers MGMT have shared details of a new album. Yay! The upcoming eponymous record (their third), is due out September 17th on Columbia, and will include the RSD release 'Alien Days', as well as some material they've been experimenting with live, most notably 'Mystery Disease' and 'Your Life Is A Lie', as well as a cover of 'Introspection' by Faine Jade, the '60s garage act. MGMT will include "the Optimizer" which provides a visual representation of via video clips and CGI elements (probably a bit like a really posh version of Itunes Visualiser, then).

There are music videos for three tracks ('Alien Days', 'Cool Song No. 2' and 'Your Life Is A Lie') in production, ready to be released in preparation for the new record.
