Published Feb 07, 2018With an album due out this week, MGMT are giving another push behind their Little Dark Age with a new video. This time, it's for album cut "Me & Michael."
The video was directed by Joey Frank and Randy Lee Maitland, and according to a press release, here's what the clip is all about:
The video tells the story of MGMT being moved to steal a song written by Filipino band Truefaith, a theft leading to a rise of unprecedented success followed by an accusation of plagiarism and a crashing fall. When the band puts their heads together and decide to ask for forgiveness, they contact Truefaith — who are actually an established rock band from the Philippines and who recorded a version and video called "Ako at si Michael" for this little MGMT stunt. If you look around for influences, you will find Russian versions too.
You can find the video to "Me & Michael" below.
Little Dark Age is out Friday (February 9) via Columbia. MGMT will also be taking the album on tour throughout Europe and North America, and you can find all the dates over here.
