The Flaming Lips Announce New LP

By January 25, 2013

Follow me on:

The Terror will be the 13th album for The Flaming Lips. Due out April 2, via Warner Bros, the new record for Wayne Coyne and co marks the band's first proper studio LP since 2009's Embryonic. And that's the cover art right there —>

Recorded, as per usual, by in-house producer Dave Fridmann, at his Tarbox Road Studio in upstate New York, The Terror is, apparently, filled with end-of-the-world terrors. And is, thus, being billed as a 'darker' Flaming Lips LP.

"Why would we make this music that is The Terror - this bleak, disturbing record...??" writes Coyne, the band's inimitable frontman, writes in the press-release for the album. "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?? "We want, or wanted, to believe that without love we would disappear", Coyne continues, "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."

The Terror Track List:
1. "Look...The Sun Is Rising"
2. "Be Free, A Way"
3. "Try To Explain"
4. "You Lust"
5. "The Terror"
6. "You Are Alone"
7. "Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die"
8. "Turning Violent"
9. "Always There...In Our Hearts"
