The Flaming Lips
are gearing up for the release of their 15th album Oczy Mlody and now the album’s first single “How??” has a music video.
The video is just as odd and exuberant as you’d expect from the band, with women in tight latex bodysuits suggestively shooting fireworks at each other and riding motorcycles adorned with neon lights.
If you’ve got some burning questions about the new album, Flaming Lips guitarist, singer and principal songwriter Wayne Coyne will be hosting a Facebook live chat today at 1 p.m. EST. You can tune in here.
The band also announced that their cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” will be released on 7-inch red vinyl.
Dates for The Flaming Lips’ newly expanded tour in support of Oczy Mlody are below (beneath Paste Cloud audio from a Lips show circa 1999), with tickets going on sale on Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. local time. Oczy Mlody will be released on Jan. 13, 2017. You can pre-order the album and “Space Oddity” on the band’s website.
