New Flaming Lips Album
2013-01-24 by Kadir Ari | 38 Comments

The Flaming Lips will release their new album "The Terror" on April 2.

Frontman Wayne Coyne: "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.

"We want, or wanted, to believe that without love we would disappear, that love, somehow, would save us that, yeah, if we have love, give love and know love, we are truly alive and if there is no love, there would be no life. The Terror is, we know now, that even without love, life goes on... we just go on… there is no mercy killing."


Tracklist:

1. Look...The Sun Is Rising
2. Be Free, A Way
3. Try To Explain
4. You Lust
5. The Terror
6. You Are Alone
7. Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die
8. Turning Violent
9. Always There...In Our Hearts

Very interesting.

I really liked what they did with Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon album.

This should be pretty great, and hopefully an extension of the dark sounds explored on Embryonic

If the steady decline of FLips albums is any indicator, this is going to suck.

God damn do I love the new Flaming Lips stuff. Hopefully this will be as good as Embryonic or even better.

Embryonic was pretty good, can't really say that I like anything after that. This does look extremely interesting, though, and I'll definitely pick up a copy.
