Initially released over the weekend on a cassette (yes, really!) to coincide with Record Store Day, MGMT’s new track ‘Alien Days’ is now appearing online.

The track is a strong return to form for the 5-piece, and encapsulates their psychedelic/rock natured styles.

Check out the new single below; ‘Alien Days’ is expected to be the lead single off the band’s forthcoming as-yet-untitled third album, due 2013.
