MGMT Reveals Sega-tastic Album Cover for Congratulations

MGMT, who seem to have had more songs on soundtracks than The Rolling Stones, have released the cover for their highly anticipated new album, Congratulations (Due out 04.13.10)—following up Oracular Spectacular.
Holy, Sega Genesis Batman! It looks like a video game from the early '90s, but what more would you expect from the men who gave us "Time to Pretend" which is probably playing on a film trailer right now somewhere in the world.
If you can judge an album by its cover, and Lord knows sometimes you can, this record is going to be a blast. Kudos to MGMT for keeping rock n' roll lighthearted. However, if there is some kind of serious Lady Gaga-style evil subliminal message hidden in that cover, we'll never listen to "Kids" again, no matter how catchy it is…
