The Flaming Lips announce new Album…and they're in a Super Bowl Commercial

    Today The Flaming Lips announced through a press release that they will be releasing a new record The Terror, their thirteenth studio album, on April 2nd. It states "The album was produced by the band’s long-time collaborator Dave Fridmann and THE FLAMING LIPS at Tarbox Road Studios. It is comprised of 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. It’s up to you, the listener, to decide what it means to you".

    Wayne Coyne explains, “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. Maybe this is the beginning of the answer.”

   “If we have love, give love and know love,” Coyne says, “we are truly alive and if there is no love, there would be no life. The Terror, we know now, that even without love, life goes on…we just go on…There is no mercy killing.”

  All pre-orders of The Terror will include an Instant gratification, Non-Album, Bonus Track titled,
“Sun Blows Up Today.” 

  “Sun Blows Up Today” is also the music bed for a very cool TV commercial which also stars The Flaming Lips and will air during the Super Bowl on Feb 3rd.
   Additionally THE LIPS have also created a lyric video especially for this non-album Bonus track.
