Mgmt Forced To Change Style After Album Flop
Electro-pop stars Mgmt are under pressure from their record label to change their musical style following the release of their last album, Congratulations. The band shot to fame upon the release of their 2007 offering Oracular Spectacular, which landed them a Grammy Award nomination for Best New Artist, while their track Kids also received a nod. The duo released the follow-up Congratulations in April (10), but the musicians admit bosses at their Columbia label were less than impressed with their new sound and have vowed to take tighter control of their next album. Andrew Van-Wyngarden tells Scotland's Daily Record newspaper, "I definitely think our music will change in the future because Congratulations is almost two years old now. We have some ideas and have been talking about possible directions of where to go next. "We are just in much more positive mental states than when we wrote Congratulations. We're less anxious. We've been looking at relationships with the label during the recording process and it's quite different this time. They'll be more involved and not give us as much freedom." Thanks for the report to Contactmusic.com.
