The Flaming Lips to Release New Album This April
THE FLAMING LIPS and Warner Bros. Records are pleased to announce the long-awaited release of The Terror, their thirteenth studio album, on April 2nd in the U.S., andApril 1stthrough Bella Union in Europe. The album was produced by the band's long-time collaborator Dave Fridmann and THE FLAMING LIPS at Tarbox Road Studios. It is comprised of 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. It's up to you, the listener, to decide what it means to you.
"Sun Blows Up Today" is also the music bed for a very cool TV commercial which also stars The Flaming Lips and will air during the Super Bowl on Feb 3rd. Additionally THE LIPS have also created a lyric video especially for this non-album Bonus track. We will announce further details when / where the video can be viewed exclusively in advance of its on-sale date very soon.
