MGMT has released a bizarre music video for their single, "Alien Days". Co-directed by Sam Fleischner and Megha Barnabas, the clip opens with a 19th century-looking couple getting strapped into giant gyroscopes.
The video also the gives some weird glimpses at hundreds of goats, a blooming sunflower and two aliens dancing together. It gets weirder when the woman in the video gives birth to a circular object that appears to be something edible for the aliens.
"Alien Days" was premiered on March 30, 2012 at the Festival Estereo Picnic in Bogota, Colombia. Earlier this year, the electronic duo's frontman Andrew VanWyngarden described the song as the feeling when "a parasitic alien is in your head, controlling things."
The song is featured in MGMT's self-titled newest album, "MGMT", which peaked at No. 14 on Billboard 200 after being released back in September. The group is currently prepping for a national tour that begins on November 10 in Austin, Texas.
