Flaming Lips And Miley Are Fam

2017-01-06 by SowingSeason STAFF | 43 Comments
The Flaming Lips have once again teamed up with controversial pop star and former Disney actress Miley Cyrus. The band and songstress have worked together in the past on Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, as well as on music videos for 'BB Talk' and 'Lighter.' Their latest collaboration is for 'We a Famly' - the 4th track released in advance of The Flaming Lips' January 13th, 2017 release of Oczy Mlody.

The song is heavily influenced by electronic/psychedelic elements, and will serve as the final track on the group's 14th full length LP. The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne was quoted as saying the following about the track: "...at first this song was intended to be part of the Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz record. Then we (her and us) lost interest in it. It was, back then, very slow and serious...But after speeding it up (a lot) and adding the galloping “We A Famly” sing-a-long bit we thought it was dorky enough and fun enough to present to the world. And... We (Cyrus and us) really do say to each other, all the time, “We A Famly.”

You can stream the track below:

Boring as fuck, and it seems like it bored them too but they just wanted to release it for collab cred

Wayne is so damn lame, i saw him a couple summers ago at this pizza place in downtown OKC and he was reading the newspaper upside down. One of the worst things about living here is seeing him pretending to be on acid all the time.

song is boring, kinda w/e

I think they used to be a great band and he was actually a very inspiring guy. I HATE the direction they went and that they started working with this stupid cunt.

okay actually listening to this and this just feels really half-baked

they really shouldn't have bothered doing this if it bored them the first time around

though if this is the best they can put out after four or so years of doing nothing worthwhile, this isn't going to be that good

Yeup, never been so apprehensive about them dropping a new album.

I love The Flaming Lips, but this just a big fat NOPE.
I'm actually pretty terrified how the album might turn out.

I actually like this song and I'm hella hyped for the new record- Through the singles released thus far it feels like a mix of the lighter, summery bits in Yoshimi like the title track Pt. 1 mixed with the orchestral... Breakdowns? Or flourishes of the Soft Bulletin and the glacial beauty of the Terror. Album at the very least will be pleasant.

OMG that autotune (or whatever the vocal effect is) is terrible.

I hate this a lot. Good thing I'm not into their earlier stuff otherwise I'd be upset by this.

Adolf really, how is Miley a 'cunt?' Is it the overt, glaring sexuality that she embraces because Wayne recorded a music video for an Embryonic track with an entirely naked cast, including himself.

I think Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Pets is anything but boring- Not inherently good but... Not boring.

the few songs they've done together just don't really do anything exciting

this for example, what's so good about it? it just comes across as trying to be trippy and weird and it just fails in every aspect of it

Eh, that's subjective. I like this track and the direction they're taking for the new album. How have you felt about the other tracks?

im sure this totally happened.

I really liked How?? but found The Castle to be forgettable

hopefully it all comes together in context of Oczy Mlody but it's going to be an hour long

I just really hope it's a solid 3 at the least so there's something good on it
