April Fools’ Day is looking pretty sweet for fans of The Flaming Lips. That is the day the band will drop their first proper studio album since 2009.
The Terror will feature nine brand new tracks and was produced by Dave Fridmann and the Lips. Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne shared the following nuggets of information on the new album via a press release.
“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.”
