MGMT Says 'No Singles for Sophomore LP'

Although MGMT's singles (Kids, Time to Pretend) have enjoyed an overwhelming amount of success, the group has decided that their sophomore Spring release Congratulations will have no pre-released tracks.

"We'd rather people hear the whole album as an album and see what tracks jump out rather than the ones that get played on the radio – if anything gets played on the radio!" The band said in a recent NME interview.

Not putting out singles would minimize the number of illegal downloads (and pretentious singles-ain't-cool listeners), potentially saving labels and bands a bit more money. Could this be the future of releasing material?
