MGMT’s New Album ‘Congratulations’ Streaming On-line

March 21, 2010 by  

MGMT are letting fans listen to their new album Congratulations on their website for free.

The band have made the decision to stream the album following its recent leak onto the internet and even considered giving it away for free, but felt resistance from those around them.

A statement on the site reads ‘Hey everybody, the album leaked, and we wanted you to be able to hear it from us. We wanted to offer it as a free download but that didn’t make sense to anyone but us’

The album is not officially due for release until the 12th of April.
