And Wayne Coyne has directed the video for 'Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt 1'...

Flaming Lips are to release the near-title track from their current album ‘YOSHIMI BATTLES THE PINK ROBOTS’ as their next single.

The band filmed a video for ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1’ last weekend (October 5/6) in their native Oklahoma City.

According to MTV, the promo, directed by singer Wayne Coyne, depicts the band playing in a club to a disinterested crowd.

‘Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1’ will be released as a limited edition, 7-inch picture disc, although a definite release date has yet to be set. Like the LP and it’s first single ‘Do You Realize??’, the cover will feature Coyne’s artwork.

The band support Beck, and act as his backing band, on October 17 in Minneapolis.
