Official Cover Art for MGMT's 'Congratulations' Album
MGMT choose to go colorful and comical for the artwork which will be featured on the front page of their upcoming album "Congratulations". Coming out via RollingStone, the artwork sees a cartoon character of two-headed orange chimpanzee riding on an icy wave.
Aimed to follow up their 2007 effort "Oracular Spectacular", this new release is scheduled to hit the market across U.S. on April 13. In an interview with NME, the duo said they won't release any singles from the album.
"We'd rather people hear the whole album as an album and see what tracks jump out rather than the ones that get played on the radio - if anything gets played on the radio," Ben Goldwasseer told the publication. "We've been talking about ways to make sure people hear the album as an album in order and not just figure out what are the best three tracks, download those and not listen to the rest of it."
