New MGMT ‘Congratulations’ dropping this spring

With blogosphere praise and two Grammy award nominations under their belt (Best New Artist and Best Pop Performance By a Duo or Group With Vocals), MGMT returns to the scene with their sophomore effort entitled, Congratulations.

The new album drops this spring and follows 2008’s Oracular Spectacular.

Singer Andrew Vanwyngarden told Spin: “It’s definitely going to shock people. We dropped any sort of irony that was on the first record, and Congratulations feels true to who we really are.”

Check out Spin’s interview with Vanwyngarden to find out his opinions on fame, the Grammys, and even Lady GaGa.

Can it beat the success of Oracular? Will they escape the pressure of the sophomore slump like Vampire Weekend [barely] did?

The Winslow certainly hopes so.
