The Flaming Lips

Yesterday, we learned that the Flaming Lips have a new album called The Terror coming in a few months. The album’s first single is actually a non-album bonus cut called “Sun Blows Up Today,” a euphoric burst of white-noise keyboard explosions and feedback. This song will also soundtrack a Super Bowl commercial this year, which makes sense, since historically gigantic TV audiences love avant-psych freakouts. The band just debuted the song with a lyric video that looks like a laptop exploding inside your brain. Watch it below.

  6. The video is private now. Why, Lips? Why?

  7. Why is this video private?! I NEED IT NOW

  8. It’s like the iTunes visualizer on crack.

  9. I like the song but the video makes me dizzy

  10. That whole “bleak and disturbing” thing has got to be an April fools joke.
