In April, The Flaming Lips announced their 15th studio album, King’s Mouth: Music And Songs, set for release on Friday, July 19th via Warner Bros. Records. King’s Mouth: Music And Songs is the follow-up to band’s 2017 album, Oczy Mlody. The new album will feature 12 tracks and the music will be connected by narration provided by The Clash’s Mick Jones.
On Friday, the band released “Giant Baby”, the second single off of their forthcoming album, King’s Mouth: Music And Songs. The new single follows the release of the forthcoming album’s lead single, ““All For The Life Of The City.” The dreamy new song features opening narration from Mick Jones before the band takes over and coasts into a psychedelic soundscape.

The album parallels frontman Wayne Coyne’s 2015 art installation, also called King’s Mouth, where participants crawl into a large metallic head to experience a music-driven LED light spectacle. King’s Mouth: Music And Songs will also be accompanied by a book, King’s Mouth: Immerse Heap Trip Fantasy Experience, which Coyne wrote and illustrated.
The Flaming Lips and The Claypool Lennon Delirium will team up for a run of 2019 summer tour dates with Particle Kid. Announced in late April, the two psych-rock bands along with the indie-Americana Particle Kid will hit the road for 12 performances beginning on July 23rd in Wichita, KS and continuing through August 7th with a show in Raleigh, NC.
