MGMT collaborate with Christine & The Queens on 'Dancing In Babylon'

With their highly-anticipated new album landing in just a few days, MGMT have now dropped the final cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Dancing In Babylon' sees them collaborate with Christine & The Queens for the new release, comes accompanied by a stunning new Ray Tintori-directed video, and follows on from the previously shared efforts 'Nothing To Declare', 'Bubblegum Dog', and 'Mother Nature' in previewing their new LP 'Loss Of Life', which is out this Friday 23rd February via Mom + Pop.

Speaking about the new release, Christine & The Queens said, “I always loved MGMT's multiverse, their freedom and talent, their limpid songwriting and killer soundscapes. Regal, inspiring. When they reached out for this power ballad, I was honored and also excited to dive into their dream, because I have the same all-encompassing approach with my work. I loved the backstory of the lyrics as well, and I work my lower register here more than usual. I felt invited into their cool movie, and I’m glad to be now a part of the galaxy. Let's work on more love in the love galaxy.”

While MGMT added, "Creating the ‘Dancing in Babylon’ video with Chris and Ray was a prodigious affair (love), requiring everyone involved to operate in six dimensions at once, all while simultaneously making a simple turkey sandwich with Dijon mustard. The sandwich that emerged is a cosmic mille-feuille that would be presentable in most high-end French diners.”
