MGMT's third album is set to take on a more commercial feel after their record label reeled in the band's creative freedom.

The band released sophomore album Congratulations earlier this year, and while it's psychedelic nature was embraced with critics and fans, its sales failed to match those of debut album Oracular Spectacular.

The means MGMT will hold less creative control when it comes to recording their next album.

"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," Andrew Van-Wyngarden told the Daily Record.

"I definitely think our music will change in the future because Congratulations is almost two years old now," Van-Wyngarden continued.

"We are just in much more positive mental states than when we wrote Congratulations. We're less anxious."
