The Flaming Lips Announce New Album

The Flaming Lips have announced a brand new album coming April 2. The album is titled The Terror, and according to lead singer Wayne Coyne, the record is “bleak” and “disturbing.”

Wayne also stated in a press release:

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. We want, or wanted, to believe that without love we would disappear, that love, somehow, would save us that, yeah, if we have love, give love and know love, we are truly alive and if there is no love, there would be no life. The Terror is, we know now, that even without love, life goes on… we just go on… there is no mercy killing.

Here’s the tracklist:

01 Look…The Sun Is Rising
02 Be Free, A Way
03 Try To Explain
04 You Lust
05 The Terror
06 You Are Alone
07 Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die
