Guess it's time to pretend that your last album, Congratulations, never happened, guys!
MGMT's record label, Columbia, is pressuring the band to change up their style, after bosses at their label
as well as everyone else were unimpressed with their latest release.
Looks like they're on board to de-suckify. Here's what Andrew Van-Wyngarden of the duo had to say about it:
"I definitely think our music will change in the future because Congratulations is almost two years old now. We have some ideas and have been talking about possible directions of where to go next."
More from Van-Wyngarden:
"We are just in much more positive mental states than when we wrote Congratulations. We're less anxious. We've been looking at relationships with the label during the recording process and it's quite different this time. They'll be more involved and not give us as much freedom."
Suuuuuuuuuuuure, Andrew. If it makes the pain less strong by pretending that you're going to change your musical style on your own terms, then go for it. Whatever works!
Will U give MGMT another chance with their next album?
