Music Video: MGMT - "All We Ever Wanted Was Everything" (Bauhaus cover)


Indie superstars MGMT have released an incredible video for their cover of Bauhaus’ “All We Ever Wanted Was Everything”. The track was released a few weeks ago on MGMT’s Late Night Tales compilation and was the only song on the album that they actually recorded. MGMT do a fantastic job with the already beautiful song, which was first released on Bauhaus’ 1982 album, The Sky’s Gone Out.

As usual, MGMT has a visually astounding video to go alongside the track. This time it’s a pop-up style animated one by Ned Wenlock. The clip unfolds the song’s lyrics over a series of images of two musicians walking around and playing instruments in a snowy, polluted metropolis. Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser’s Late Night Tales compilation is available now, and the duo are also working on a new self-titled MGMT album, out next year from Columbia Records. Check out the video below, and Bauhaus’ original below that.
