MGMT Debut New Songs at First Show Since 2014

Last night, MGMT returned to the stage for the first time since late 2014 at Memphis’ Beale Street Festival, and the band made good on a promise announced earlier in the day that they would debut new tunes from an upcoming album.

Along with their hits like “Time to Pretend,” “Electric Feel” and “Kids,” MGMT debuted three new songs throughout the night, Stereogum notes. See the full setlist below, along with some fan-shot clips.

The band also emailed fans yesterday prior to the performance, saying, “Incredibly soon we will get back up on the horse of live music in Memphis, TN, the birthplace of rock and roll and the home of the blues (and formerly Andrew), and from atop this great horse we will play old songs and new songs. New songs from our new album that you will newly hear this year! Does this make any sense? What we are saying is we are about to tour around North America and also put out a new album!”
