The Flaming Lips Announce New Album American Head, Share Song: Listen

Music, News

The Flaming Lips have announced a new album called American Head. The King’s Mouth follow-up arrives September 11 via Warner. (A double colored vinyl follows on October 2, along with limited edition art prints.) It’s produced by longtime collaborator Dave Fridmann and features the Kacey Musgraves collaboration “Flowers of Neptune 6.” Check out the tracklist and new song “My Religion Is You” below.

In a story Wayne Coyne wrote, excerpted in the press release, he says, “The music and songs that make up the AMERICAN HEAD album are based in a feeling. A feeling that, I think, can only be expressed through music and songs. We were, while creating it, trying to NOT hear it as sounds… but to feel it. Mother’s sacrifice, Father’s intensity, Brother’s insanity, Sister’s rebellion… I can’t quite put it into words.”

Earlier this year, the Flaming Lips released a collaborative LP with Deap Valley, as Deap Lips. Coyne and co. recently stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where they performed “Race for the Prize” with an actual audience, from the socially distanced confines of giant bubbles.
