Immersion of sight and sounds has been a staple of The Flaming Lips, and King’s Mouth: Music and Songs continues that journey. The new album is set for a July 26 release via Warner Bros. Records.
King’s Mouth: Music and Songs is the outfit’s 15th studio album. Featuring narration from The Clash’s Mick Jones, the album features 12 tracks that serves as the soundtrack of Wayne Coyne’s art installation. The album was originally released as a limited edition gold color vinyl pressing for Record Store Day, and all 4,000 copies are sold out. The group’s previous album, Oczy Mlody, came out in 2017.
The installation, which debuted in 2015, has made stops at Meow Wolf (Santa Fe, NM), the American Visionary Art Museum (Baltimore, MD), the Pacific Northwest College of Art (Portland, OR), and Wayne Coyne’s own space The Womb (Oklahoma City, OK). It’s now housed at Rough Trade NYC through May 31.
