The Flaming Lips have shared a new song ‘How??’, from their forthcoming new album ‘Oczy Mlody’.
The band also released a music video for the track, which is the second from the LP following the recent unveiling of ‘The Castle’.
The clip, which you can watch below, features bright costumes, and also finds Wayne Coyne on a motorcycle covered in stuffed animals.
Frontman Wayne Coyne recently described ‘Oczy Mlody’ as sounding like “Syd Barrett meets A$AP Rocky and they get trapped in a fairy tale from the future.”
The Flaming Lips released a series of videos explaining the album, with Coyne describing the meaning behind the album’s Polish language title and the songs ‘Nigdy Nie (Never No’ and ‘Almost Home (Blisko Domu).’
“At first it appealed to us because it appeared to sound like a drug; it reminded us of oxycodone,” Coyne said. “And then I think this initial appeal made us curious about what it could mean, and I believe when we looked it up, the very first thing we saw was that it meant ‘eyes of the young’… We wouldn’t like the title ‘Eyes of the Young,’ but we liked how these other jumbled words could mean that.”
You can see the Oczy Mlody track listing below:
‘There Should Be Unicorns’
‘Sunrise (Eyes of the Young)’
‘Nigdy Nie (Never No)’
‘Galaxy I Sink’
‘One Night While Hunting For Faeries and Witches and Wizards To Kill’
‘Listening To The Frogs With Demon Eyes’
‘Almost Home (Blisko Domu)’
‘We A Famly’
‘Oczy Mlody’ is produced by the Flaming Lips’ longtime collaborator Dave Fridmann and is set for release on January 13.
Meanwhile, Coyne recently shared a mashup of Tame Impala and A$AP Rocky ahead of the band’s party at the Womb Gallery in Oklahoma City.
