The title track and first single from MGMT's Little Dark Age album, the song was released on October 17, 2017. "We felt like we had reached a flow, it was the sort of chemistry, the kind of magic feeling we had when we started the band," the duo explained to Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show.
Keyboardist Ben Goldwasser told Lowe the band was dancing around to the track in the recording studio when they finished making it, adding "It feels good to make music that's fun."
The electro-goth track's cryptic lyrics appear to be chronicling some sort of apocalyptic doom.
If you get out of bed And find me standing all alone Open-eyed Burn the page My little dark age
The tripped-out gothic music video, directed by David MacNutt and Nathaniel Axel, takes the track's medieval title literally as the MGMT duo get stalked by the figure of Death.
