MGMT drop off new single, ‘Hand It Over,’ from upcoming album
In October of 2017, indie rock heroes MGMT finally gave fans the missing piece of the comeback everyone had been anxiously awaiting: confirmation of a new album due in early 2018. Following the release of the album’s titular track, “Little Dark Age,” MGMT’s first single in four years, the band shared a second preview with a melodic, morbid piece called “When You Die” in December. Now, as the group nears the arrival of their fourth studio album, they’ve shared a dreary, psychedelic new cut called “Hand It Over.”
Building off of the second single’s inky appeal, the new tune is an enticingly gloomy, downtempo blend of surf rock and syrupy synth-pop all wrapped up in distant, trailing vocalwork. As MGMT’s new album begins to take shape, Little Dark Age sounds to be a fitting title for the band’s upcoming work.
