With four weeks to go before they release Oczy Mlody, the Flaming Lips have given us a third preview of what’s to come. You can listen to “Sunrise (Eyes of the Young)” in the widget below.

The new track follows “The Castle” and “How??” as the previous songs they’ve given us sice announcing the album back in October. Its subtitle is the English translation of the Polish phrase that serves as its title. But it’s not truly the title track because there already is a track called “Oczy Mlody,” which opens the record.

A week after the Flaming Lips put out Oczy Mlody on Jan. 13, 2017, which also happens to be frontman Wayne Coyne’s 56th birthday, the group will begin a lengthy tour in support of it. They’ll be in Europe from Jan. 21 through Feb. 3. Then, they’ll take a month off and play seven weeks across North America, beginning in Boston on March 3 and winding up April 23 in St. Louis. You can get complete information regarding tickets at the band’s website.

Oczy Mlody marks the Flaming Lips’ first record of their own material since 2013’s The Terror. In 2014, they put out a song-for-song remake of the BeatlesSgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band that they dubbed With a Little Help From My Fwends, and featured contributions by Tegan and Sara, J. Mascis and Miley Cyrus. The same day that Oczy Mlody hits shelves, they’re also releasing a seven-inch single of their cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”
