Watch the Video for MGMT's New Single, "Your Life is a Lie"

MGMT released a new single today titled “Your Life is a Lie,” a track that opens the band’s forthcoming self-titled album. The song sees the duo leaning toward more subdued garage tones, though the video for the song is no less eccentric than their usual fare of colorful trip-inspired videos. MGMT teamed up with Tom Kuntz, who worked on the “Congratulations” video, to produce a series of detailed scenes that follow the lyrics for the song. Some of the strange occurrences include a person in a squirrel suit, a crying rock, a cross-dressing man and a man repeatedly being hit by a ball.

MGMT is set for a Sept. 17 release via Columbia Records.
