MGMT Premieres 'Your Life Is a Lie' Music Video


The band unveils the clip to their lead single from forthcoming self-titled third album due on September 17.

Psychedelic rock band MGMT premieres a music video for "Your Life Is a Lie", the lead cut from their upcoming self-titled third studio album set to arrive on September 17. Ben Goldwasser and Andrew Vanwyngarden's new two-minute clip is helmed by Tom Kuntz, the same guy who directed their "Congratulations" video.

The visuals are a hodgepodge of some pretty odd images, a skeleton chorus, a cartoon fetus, a crying pebble, and Henry Winkler consoling a young teenage girl. Throughout the short video, a few shots are repetitively played, like a man in a suit & tie being hit on the head with a green ball and another guy eating a banana before the words "your life is a lie" appear in several different ways, in one shot on a birthday cake and in another, as graffiti on a high wall.

They were much less vague when it came to describing what their new album would sound like. Compared to their 2010 album "Congratulations", the band said "MGMT" would be "less distraught, nervous and paranoid" with them being "more at ease" with themselves as a group now than they felt three years ago.

"We're feeling a little bit more at ease and ready to take whatever comes our way," VanWyngarden said. "First and foremost we feel like we've made a really good album that reflects who we are right now...For lots of different reasons, 2010 was a wild ride for us."
