All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen spoke with MGMT's Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden about the band's latest album, Congratulations. The two also took questions from listeners posted in an online chat room.

Congratulations is the band's followup to the breakout 2007 album Oracular Spectacular. Unlike its predecessor, Congratulations doesn't include any singles, because Goldwasser and VanWyngarden say they want the album to be played as a complete work.

You can hear Congratulations in its entirety as part of our Exclusive First Listen series.
