‘The Terror’ is the new album by The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips are to release their new album ‘The Terror’, the band’s 13th studio album.

The Flaming Lips

The album was produced by Dave Fridmann and the band at Tarbox Road Studios in New York State. The album is described as “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”.

Frontman Wayne Coyne adds: “Why would we make this music that is ‘The Terror’…this bleak, disturbing record? I don’t really want to know the answer that I think is coming: that we were hopeless, we were disturbed and, I think, accepting that some things are hopeless. Or letting hope in one area die so that hope can start to live in another? Maybe this is the beginning of the answer.”

A new non-album track titled ‘Sun Blows Up Today’ will be available from February 3.
