Matthew Dear has announced a full remix of MGMT's recent Little Dark Age album. Fully endorsed by MGMT: "We are excited to present Matthew Dear's inventive approach to "remixing," a unique track by track reworking of our latest album Little Dark Age. Consider this Frankenstein-y monster mix for your heinies an early Halloween treat."

Released digitally on Friday, September 28th, Dear explained: "The best music makes you feel like it was written specifically for you, and at the risk of sounding slightly mad, I felt that it was. I couldn't pick one song, however. Then it kinda hit me. Why not remix the whole damn thing? I offered, and surprisingly they accepted. Fast forward a few months and we're touring together. I learned more about the meaning of some songs and was tuned into the album at its live core. The remix followed in somewhat effortless fashion. It basically just poured out of me. I write my own albums through some sort of cultural osmosis, but those take years. This ended up being a hyper-study remix an entire album by a band I admire. For being such an atypical string of events which came together, the entire process, including my time with the band, has been everything but atypical. Ultimately, I'm honored they allowed me to crack open a vault that usually remains sealed and trust my motives. Not sure I'll ever remix another artist's album. If Little Dark Age is the first and last for me, that would be just fine."
