Flaming Lips Share New Song, ‘How??’
The Flaming Lips are preparing to release their next album, Oczy Mlody, on Jan. 13, 2017. Today (Nov. 11), they've given us the second song from the record, "How??" You can watch the video above.
"How??" follows "The Castle," which arrived with a video and news of a world tour. They'll begin in London a week after Oczy Mlody hits record store shelves and stay in Europe for two weeks. After a month off, they'll begin a stretch of North American dates beginning in Boston on March 3 and ending in St. Louis on April 23. For full ticket information, visit the Tour section of the Flaming Lips' website.
Oczy Mlody, which means "eyes of the young" in Polish, will come out on Wayne Coyne's 56th birthday. It marks their first album of all-new material since 2013's The Terror. A year later, however, they did a song-for-song remake of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band that they called With a Little Help From My Fwends and featured, per the title, performances by artists as diverse as J. Mascis, Tegan and Sara and Miley Cyrus.
Last month, the group launched a limited-edition whiskey called Brainville Rye, which is made by Chicago-based Few Spirits. “Whiskey, it’s such a volatile drink,” Coyne said. “Upon pouring a drink, it’s like accepting that you may become a werewolf – and really, who doesn’t want to become a werewolf? Ha.” Production was limited to only 5,000 bottles.
Fans who pre-order Oczy Mlody at their website will receive an immediate download of "How??"
