It looks like The Flaming Lips have a ton of new music on the way. During an interview on Kyle Meredith With…., frontman Wayne Coyne chatted about a handful of forthcoming projects, which includes a live record from their 2016 Red Rocks performance, a collaborative release with Deap Vally, and their very own new album.
The interview, which clocks in at just under an hour, sees Coyne discussing the band’s career, from working with The Clash’s Mick Jones to how politics have interviewed their newest tracks. At about 19 minutes, Meredith asks the frontman what Flaming Lips fans can expect from the band in the future, to which Coyne revealed the long list of projects they’re currently working on.
“We always have a lot of things going on,” Coyne explains. “In November, we’ve got a long-awaited one: The Flaming Lips playing with the Denver Symphony Orchestra live at Red Rocks Amphitheater. That’s finally coming out. It was recorded in 2016. We have a couple albums that we’ve recorded with some other people, too. There’s a duo of a guitar player and a drummer called Deap Vally. These two girls came out about two years ago now that we started working on music together. That record is going to come out. It’s The Flaming Lips and Deap Vally.”
Coyne went on to outline the band’s very own forthcoming record. “And then I think by next summer we have another Flaming Lips album,” Coyne explained. “It’s really shaping up to be great, great – really stumbled upon some unique songs and stuff. We’re still working on that and will be working on it through October and November. But we should know pretty soon if we’re able to finish that in time. There’s always a lot of things going on.”
