1) tentatively scheduled for next September 2) as yet untitled 3) Beck says “I haven’t quite finished it. But I’d say it’s finding its legs" and that “it’s still in flux." 4) "I do want to put out something that is a lot more up, and energetic, and melodic.“ "“Some are experimental and abrasive." 5) It's “not of a piece” with Morning Phase. “It’ll be quite different to this record." 6) Beck says, "I’m thinking more about the live show, which is more about energy. It’s a lot more up.“ All of this suggests he might want to make an album he can support with another high energy tour like those from the late '90s.

November 15, 2013 on Wayne Coyne Kicked Off Instagram Again
Hey, this was taken from this post (http://thefutureheart.com/2013/11/13/beck-interview/) which I wrote largely through translating an interview posted two days ago from Argentina (today the original interviewer confirmed my translation). A lot of sites (ie Stereogum) saw my post and reposted bits, focusing on the Spotify comments. Beck clearly has it on his mind however in the context of the full interview Spotify was discussed only as part of a larger conversation on change, and how it's inevitable. He wasn't coming out and "hating" on Spotify in the sense that Thom Yorke did. In other words, don't expect any twitter tirades about Spotify from Beck anytime soon. That's an impression created more by all the articles that popped up today than by Beck's actual comments. Also, Beck is headlining Buenos Aires’ Planeta Terra Festival live tonight and you can watch online https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=634996336550910

Out November 29, The "Peace Sword" EP is the second of two EPs the Lips are releasing in the next two months (the first a split with Tame Impala). Songs include “If They Move, Shoot Em,” "Think Like a Machine, Not a Boy," "Wolf Children" and "Assassin Beetle/The Dream Is Ending." Other artists have collaborated with the Lips for this project (so far New Fumes - aka former Polyphonic Spree guitarist Daniel Huffman) has confirmed he's on it). Coyne has described the music as "more live playing, but not meant to sound live…?? it’s weird..." See more of the artwork and read a full preview of this (and all other confirmed forthcoming Flaming Lips releases - and there are quite a few) at http://thefutureheart.com/2013/09/27/lips-fall-preview/

August 30, 2013 on Watch Tame Impala Cover The Flaming Lips
Beck only played one date of the AmericanaramA tour. Not a "few" as posted here. When Wilco and Beck played "Loser" there were phones lit up everywhere. Though apparently those people were just texting or instagramming because as this article notes, there's not much on youtube. Fortunately, Beck headlined the Newport Folk Festival the day after playing with Wilco with a similar set, and the entire thing is streaming via NPR. Find the link for that as well as photos, a detailed review of all three Beck concerts from last weekend - including this show with Wilco - and more at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.580985265285351.1073741877.238542309529650

It's definitely being recorded, and has been for three plus weeks. Love the idea or hate it, updates on the project will be continually posted at http://www.facebook.com/TheFutureHeart if you're interested.... If you never heard of New Fumes (who by the way was Annie Clark's replacement in Poly Spree when she left to tour with Sufjan and start St Vincent), HOTT MT or Stardeath and White Dwarfs, check them out. They have some great original music!

This is the Future Heart - the uncredited source of these videos. Just want to point out last I heard they are not sold out in the store, only the online orders. Also, these hearts tie into a charity event to benefit children’s heart research next Saturday (at which you can win one).

January 25, 2013 on The Flaming Lips – “Sun Blows Up Today”
The police report clearly showed this was a misunderstanding. Read it for yourself at http://t.co/vwtfSsyP Now, a week and a half after the issue was resolved, pathetic gossip sites like Lost Ogle make a "story" out of it...and other sites similarly desperate for traffic follow suit with the general conclusion Coyne is an attention whore. Hmmm... "Who's using who? What should we do? Well, you can't be a pimp and a prostitute too..."

"Warrior" features not just members of The Flaming Lips, but also of The Strokes, Black Keys and Fun...also Iggy Pop.... Ben Folds arranged strings for a song with the Lips about K$'s past life experience. There's also a song about the ghost Kesha claims she had sex with...yes, really...

September 29, 2012 on Ke$ha – “Die Young”
The song about futuristic sex toys is almost definitely not going to be on Kesha's sophmore album. Another song the Lips worked on with Kesha called "Past Life" probably will. It's a ballad with strings arranged by Ben Folds. Watch Wayne, Steven Drozd, Ben and the string players work on it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz7sc4JHWYw Also the Ben Folds Five's first album in 13 years is out today...

September 13, 2012 on New Fumes & The Flaming Lips – “Moonchild” (King Crimson Cover)
Hey, The Future Heart here… Just want to let everyone know that not only is the “In the Court of The Crimson King” full LP remake definitely happening, it’s almost completely mixed and ready to be mastered. It’s spearheaded by Wayne Coyne though (contrary to the impression he's created in several recent interviews) it features Stardeath and White Dwarfs, Linear Downfall, and, of course, New Fumes - not The Flaming Lips per se. Wayne sings on this and "Epitaph" - which also has Steven Drozd playing on it. The tracklist and full details is here: http://www.facebook.com/TheFutureHeart/posts/143305772479650
