Congratulations is the forthcoming second album from MGMT[1] expected to be released in spring 2010.



MGMT began writing for the album in early 2009 in a "small cabin in the woods", eventually heading to Malibu to record with Pete Kember, ex-member of Spacemen 3, and vocal contributions from Royal Trux singer Jennifer Herrema[2] VanWyngarden has stated that the album is influenced by the band's massive rise in popularity since Oracular Spectacular's release, saying "[i]t's us trying to deal with all the craziness that's been going on since our last album took off. Sometimes it just doesn't feel natural."[2].

January 12th, 2010, Andrew Van Wyngarden declared the album finished in an interview on the Spin Magazine website, saying: "It's mixed and mastered, and now we're just working on presenting it to the world". It will be released during the spring.[3]

According to Alt-Nation (Satellite radio), MGMT is working on a "top secret" project with Sir Paul McCartney. (Citation???) It is unclear if the song(s) will be included on 'Congratulations.'
