MGMT: No Singles from Next Album

MGMT have put the cat among the management pigeons by insisting to NME they wouldn’t release any singles from their next album. They say it’s meant to be heard as a unified body of work, and

“There definitely isn't a 'Time To Pretend' or a 'Kids' on the album. We've been talking about ways to make sure people hear the album as an album in order and not just figure out what are the best three tracks, download those and not listen to the rest of it."

So no more crossover airplay then? It’s interesting to see a band wrestle with the implications of digital downloads, but do they risk a downturn in sales?
