The Flaming Lips Share 'Kings Mouth' Single All For The Life Of The City

Wednesday, 17 April 2019 Written by Helen Payne

The Flaming Lips have shared the first single from their new album.

Ahead of their September UK shows celebrating the 20th anniversary of their 1999 album 'The Soft Bulletin', the psych-rock band have confirmed ‘King’s Mouth’ will arrive on July 19 via Bella Union, following a limited Record Store Day release on April 13.

Their 15th album—made up of 12 tracks knitted together by a cinematic narrative from the Clash’s Mick Jones—parallels an immersive art installation of the same name, which was introduced to US museums by front man Wayne Coyne in 2015.

Also featuring an ambitious literary element, he said of his vision:

“The King’s Mouth’s immersive/child-like qualities are born from the same spark and womb as The Flaming Lips live performances. The King’s Mouth adventure was made for humans of all sizes, ages, cultures, and religions.”

The album’s first cut, All For The Life Of The City, is sample heavy and ties together electronic cuttings with real instruments in a plodding, lethargic rhythm.

'King's Mouth' tracklist:

1. We Don’t Know How And We Don’t Know Why
2. The Sparrow
3. Giant Baby
4. Mother Universe
5. How Many Times?
6. Electric Fire
7. All For The Life Of The City
8. Feedaloodum Beedle Dot
9. Funeral Parade
10. Dipped In Steel
11. Mouth Of The King
12. How Can A Head

Thu September 05 2019 - EDINBURGH Usher Hall
