Back in April 2015, Will Berman  MGMT stated in an interview that they have “been taking a little break I guess. We’ve been at it for years at this point. There’s more to come.”

While he didn’t want to speak for either Ben Goldwasser or Andrew VanWyngarden on when there would be a new album from the group, as a little late Christmas present on December 26, 2015, the band tweeted announcing that they would be making a comeback in 2016, but later corrected themselves, claiming a comeback .

Since October 2016, the band has been working on “Little Dark Age“, and on June 21, 2016, the band revealed that the album was finally finished. Now, MGMT has more details following the release their new album.

The follow-up to their 2013 self-titled album arrives on February 9th, 2018,  Columbia Records. It features production from Patrick Wimberly, formerly  Chairlift, and Dave Fridmann, who has previously produced for The Flaming Lips, Weezer, and Tame Impala.
