Before MGMT unveil their long-awaited third album, the Oracular Spectacular duo of Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser will release a Record Store Day-exclusive cassette single containing "Alien Days," a "twinkly, zonked-out psych-pop reverie" (as SPIN's Marc Hogan previously put it) that will presumably feature on the two-piece's next LP. To prepare fans for the new song's launch, the band have shared a typically oddball stop-motion teaser featuring a snippet of their comeback track. Clocking in at a mere 48 seconds, the above clip stars a sock puppet cruising on the open road in a convertible that blasts off into the great unknown just as MGMT warp to weird.
