The Flaming Lips have debuted a new track titled 'Look... The Sun Is Rising'.

The song, which will be featured on their forthcoming new album 'The Terror', is currently streaming at NPR. Previously, the Oklahoma band had released a new track titled 'Sun Blows Up Today', which will appear as a bonus cut on the LP.

'The Terror' will be released on April 1 via Bella Union (in the UK) and was produced by Dave Fridmann and the band at Tarbox Road Studios in New York State. The album is described as "nine original compositions that reflect a darker-hued spectrum than previous works along with a more inward-looking lyrical perspective than one might expect – but then again, maybe not".

Speaking about the LP, Wayne Coyne said: "Why would we make this music that is 'The Terror' – this bleak, disturbing record? I don't really want to know the answer that I think is coming: that we were hopeless, we were disturbed and, I think, accepting that some things are hopeless. Or letting hope in one area die so that hope can start to live in another? Maybe this is the beginning of the answer."

The Flaming Lips will also play live in London following the release of 'The Terror' with two London dates announced. They will play:

London, Roundhouse (May 20)
London, Roundhouse (21)
