On Oct. 31 MGMT released an official music video for their song "Alien Days" on Noisey's YouTube channel. The video is just over five minutes long and it was directed by Sam Fleischner. You can watch MGMT's official "Alien Days" music video here.
The story-line base music video revolves around a couple living a simple life together in the country. The man is played by lead vocalist Andrew VanWyngarden, and his wife is played by VanWyngarden's real life girlfriend, Camille Rowe. The couple get experimented on by a man played by vocalist/keyboardist Ben Goldwasser. Rowe eventually gets pregnant, and when she gives birth, it is not to a human being, but to a blue orb. The orb is then dropped into a clear shoot, and on the other side is an alien waiting to eat it up.
The song "Alien Days" is the lead single from MGMT's self-titled third studio album. The album "MGMT" was released on Sept. 13 via Columbia Records and it reached No. 14 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. It was the first album the band had released since "Congratulations" in 2010.
