The Flaming Lips announce new album 'American Head'

After returning earlier this year to drop their comeback single 'Flowers of Neptune 6', The Flaming Lips have now announced their plans for a new studio album arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'American Head' follows on from last year's 'King's Mouth' LP, is being previewed by the new lead track 'My Religion Is You', and is set to be released on the 11th September via Bella Union.

Speaking about the new release, frontman Wayne Coyne said, "The music and songs that make up the AMERICAN HEAD album are based in a feeling. A feeling that, I think, can only be expressed through music and songs. We were, while creating it, trying to NOT hear it as sounds... but to feel it. Mother’s sacrifice, Father’s intensity, Brother’s insanity, Sister’s rebellion...I can’t quite put it into words.

"Something switches and others (your brothers and sisters and mother and father...your pets) start to become more important to you…in the beginning there is only you... and your desires are all that you can care about...but... something switches.. I think all of these songs are about this little switch."
