American psychedelic outfit MGMT will release their third record in June, having completed the recording process over the past year in a cabin in upstate New York.

The band's self-titled follow-up to 2010's Congratulations is said to be "weirder" than their last offering, taking in influences from the likes of Aphex Twin.

Ben Goldwasser explained to Rolling Stone: "We're not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it. There's no illusion that we're going to turn into a Top 40 band. That's kind of comforting."

There aren't much more details about the incoming record just yet, except that tracks are said to include 'Mystery Disease' and 'Alien Days', the latter of which is a song about the feeling of having a parasitic alien living in your head. Seriously.

The album will also feature a cover of 60s garage number 'Introspection' by Faine Jade which was included, according to album producer Dave Fridmann, to ensure the band didn't get too carried away or whimsical.

"The recording process was really stragen, so we did a cover just to say, 'Let's get back to planet Earth for a second."
