Early next year, veteran psych-rock overlords the Flaming Lips will release their new album Oczy Mlody, and they’ve already shared first single “The Castle.” Today, they’ve given us a new one called “How??” — a song named after a question that most of us have been asking for the past few years. It’s a gooey, expansive song, with a whole lot of ethereal synth tones and with Wayne Coyne pushing his falsetto about as high as it’ll go. Early in the song, if I’m hearing it right, he requests someone to “kill your rock ‘n’ roll motherfucking hip-hop sound,” and I would love to know what that means. You can hear the song below.
UPDATE: And here’s the official music video.
Oczy Mlody is out 1/13/17 on Warner Bros. Wayne Coyne will host another Facebook Live chat today at 1PM ET/10AM PT.
