The Flaming Lips share new song ‘Sunrise (Eyes of the Young)’

The third track to be shared from next year's 'Oczy Mlody'

The Flaming Lips have shared a new song ‘Sunrise (Eyes of the Young)’. It’s the third track to be shared ahead of next year’s album ‘Oczy Mlody’.

Frontman Wayne Coyne described ‘Oczy Mlody’ as sounding like “Syd Barrett meets A$AP Rocky and they get trapped in a fairy tale from the future.”

They have previously shared tracks ‘The Castle’ and ‘How???’. You can hear ‘Sunrise (Eyes of the Young)’ below.

The Flaming Lips released a series of videos explaining the album, with Coyne describing the meaning behind the album’s Polish language title and the songs ‘Nigdy Nie (Never No’ and ‘Almost Home (Blisko Domu).’

“At first it appealed to us because it appeared to sound like a drug; it reminded us of oxycodone,” Coyne said. “And then I think this initial appeal made us curious about what it could mean, and I believe when we looked it up, the very first thing we saw was that it meant ‘eyes of the young’… We wouldn’t like the title ‘Eyes of the Young,’ but we liked how these other jumbled words could mean that.”

You can see the Oczy Mlody track listing below.

1. Oczy Mlody
2. How??
