In August, it was reported that the band’s new album could be nearing completion when the band’s regular collaborator George Salisbury (who works with them on their music videos, artwork and live projections) posted an Instagram story captioned “Gettin’ close!!!!”.
The Story showed artwork on a computer screen followed by a series of files labelled “The Flaming Lips – Oczy Mlody”, suggesting the band’s new album could be titled ‘Oczy Mlody’. Check out the Instagram story below courtesy of The Future Heart.
The Flaming Lips released their last album of original material, ‘The Terror’, in 2013. The following year they returned with an album of Beatles covers called ‘With A Little Help from My Fwends’. They also collaborated with Miley Cyrus extensively on her surprise 2015 album ‘Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz’.
Earlier this year they released a cover of David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ in the late musician’s honour. They also performed their cover of ‘Space Oddity’ on Stephen Colbert’s US chat show, joined by Star Wars favourite Chewbacca.
