The Flaming Lips have just announced their 21st album to date, American Head , will be released on September 11th, 2020. The band have released the tracklisting of their upcoming 13-song album with collaborator and producer David Fridmann. The band has also shared a music video for the track “My Religion is You”.
Frontman Wayne Coyne published a short story that discusses the album subject matter and inspiration titled We’re an American Band.
Coyne writes, “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.”
