The Flaming Lips released their 15th album, ‘King’s Mouth: Music And Songs’, as a Record Store Day exclusive limited to 4000 gold vinyl copies back in April. Before being made available to the rest of the world on July 19th, the band have gifted fans with new single ‘Giant Baby’.
Featuring Mick Jones, The Clash guitarist narrates a story about a giant baby over the track’s spacious and simplistic backdrop. Thanks to the odd intro and acoustic guitar and electronic drum kick accompaniment, in the right setting the track could be described as refreshingly psychedelic.

Released in 1999, the critically acclaimed ninth record from the band features the singles ‘Race for the Prize’ and ‘Waitin’ for a Superman’. Following its arrival, the LP was named NME‘s album of the year.
The podcast is presented by multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd and the first episode sees the musician talk about ‘Enthusiasm for Life Defeats Existential Fear Part 2,’ a track which was originally released in 2011.
