The Flaming Lips

Album: Oczy Mlody
Release Date: January 13th
"Syd Barrett meets A$AP Rocky and they get trapped in a fairy tale from the future" is how freaky frontman Wayne Coyne characterized the Flaming Lips' 15th album in a statement. The title, which may suggest an addictive prescription for musical pain relief, is actually Polish for "eyes of the young." It all takes place in a world where "Oczy Mlody is the current cool powerful party drug of choice and sleeping is the ultimate cure for everything." Oczy Mlody's sexy psychedelia has already been introduced in videos for "How??" and "The Castle," which feature fireworks, furries and a girl with rainbow teeth. Miley Cyrus reprises her 2015 Lips collaboration with a guest appearance on the final track, "We a Famly."
